Unusual premise, but little more.

The local junior high is suffering from an epidemic of food poisoning. Can Sebastian Barth find out who did it and how?

It's okay. The book itself is kind of meh, with a surprisingly serious ending. It's not a black comedy; the kids get minor cases of food poisoning and aren't really dropping like flies. I think there might be a few too many characters in the book, but other than that, it's an okay mystery by the author of Bunnicula.
Read this to my self contained special education class. The boys seemed to enjoy it. Not as much action as other books we have read, but it kept their attention.

This is my favorite in the Sebastian Barth mystery series for two reasons: the story (of course) and the title.

James Howe has written more than eighty books in the thirty-plus years he's been writing for young readers. It sometimes confuses people that the author of the humorous Bunnicula series also wrote the dark young adult novel, The Watcher, or such beginning reader series as Pi...more
