Bernie Bridges has always dreamed about going to PPP – the exclusive Preppy Prep Prep school. All the kids at PPP are rich, rich, rich! All he and his buddies have to do is win the National School Make–a–Great–Invention Contest, and off they go to PPP for a week to compete in the final round. There are just a couple of problems – their best ideas are a Hamster on a Stick and a light–up comb, and the filthy rich PPP kids are smarter and sneakier than any kid at Rotten School. Has Bernie finally met his match?
