As a parent, ever have one of those days when you feel like you turned your head for one second, and the kids exploded the house?
Yeah, well, the Problim children actually do explode the house, while their parents are away on a mission. No farting involved in the explosion, but wait, it's coming...
With nowhere to live, the children venture out of the noxious swamp and into town to find their grandfather's falling-down, nearly-forgotten mansion.
But once they arrive, will the townsfolk ever accept their weird ways -- like the telekinetic fog, the wrangling ivy security system, the human catapult and stinktastic farts (named, explained and classified in the footnotes!)? Or will they turn the kids out of the house for lack of documentation? And will their neighbor, the evil Desdemona, finally get her hands on it and its secrets, at long last?
Oh, the jokes this one generated...not to mention the gas.
Can't wait to read the sequel!
