Is the sweet town of Appleton ripe for scandal?
Consider the facts:

- Ten-year-old Reid Durr is staying up way too late reading a book from Ms. Danjerous's controversial "green dot" collection.
- The new school board president has mandated a student dress code that includes white gloves and bow ties available only at her shop.
Sound strange? Fret not. Appleton's fifth-grade sleuths are following the money
, embracing the punny,
and determined to the get to the funniest,
most rotten core of their town's juiciest scandal. Don't miss this seedy saga!
