Description

Doing homework becomes a thing of the past!

Meet the D Squad, a foursome of fifth graders at the Grand Canyon School made up of a geek, a class clown, a teacher's pet, and a slacker. They are bound together by one very big secret: the homework machine. Because the machine, code-named Belch, is doing their homework for them, they start spending a lot of time together, attracting a lot of attention. And attention is exactly what you don't want when you are keeping a secret.

Before long, things start to get out of control, and Belch becomes much more powerful than they ever imagined. Now the kids are in a race against their own creation, and the loser could end up in jail...or worse!

      • content: dragonzatch - After the first time I read this book from my teacher's classroom library in 4th grade (with thankfully no due dates!), I read it over and over again and didn't let go of it for two months. It was seriously really good. I liked all the characters and found myself now desperately wanting to own this book. My teacher got the sequel and some of his other books in and I devoured them. Another thing that helped me not get completely sucked up by manga and reminded me real literature can be enjoyable too.
