Hilarious new series of wacky stories from a US boarding school where naughty pranks and mischief rate much more highly than education. From bestselling US author, R.L. Stine. Welcome to Rotten School, founded 100 years ago by I. B. Rotten as a boarding school where students would grow and succeed intellectually, morally and physically as they prepared for a productive and happy future. However, today our standards are a little less rigorous - we are simply happy if the students are still alive at the end of each day! We think rivalry is healthy for our pupils, thus, Rotten School is divided into two warring groups: Bernie Bridges and his friends in Rotten House vs. Sherman Oaks and his friends in Nyce House. When Bernie's house mother, Mrs Heinie, takes a break from school, Bernie Bridges is happy to see the back of her, but when her replacement Mr Skruloose turns up, ordering everyone to "drop down and give me ten", Bernie has to find a way of getting his old teacher back - at any cost.
