Especially the time-squandering, mindwandering, doodling, dozing dunderheads in her class. But when she confiscates Junkyard's crucial fi nd, she fi nally goes too far. Enter Wheels (and his souped-up bike with forty-eight extra gears), Pencil (who can draw anything from memory), Spider (look up and you'll fi nd him), and their fellow misfits in a spectacular display of teamwork aimed at teaching Miss Breakbone a lesson she won't soon forget."
