The Green Beans, Volume 5: The Phantom of the Auditorium MIDDLE SCHOOL MAYHEM...
Maria and Sara are bummed out. While their friends are off adventuring on Smuttynose Island, undoubtedly engaging in all kinds of escapades and shenanigans, the sisters are stuck at Hollow Oak Elementary for another routine day of school. Could anything, they wonder, be more boring?
As the day begins to unfold before them, however, they quickly realize this day is anything but normal. A formidable presence has made itself known in the school, and increasingly strange happenings are occurring at an alarming rate.
Their father, Chief Fresco, is determined to resolve the matter, but he isn’t nearly as well versed in the realms of supreme weirdness as his daughters are. When it comes to unparalleled oddities, the girls are the experts, not the lawman of Hollow Oak. It will take more than the chief's efforts to eliminate the school’s strange problems - it's going to take the entire Fresco Family.
“The Green Beans” is a series of middle grade novels featuring elements of adventure, mystery, science fiction, and the paranormal. Recommended for ages 9-13 (and anybody who is still young at heart).
