About the Author:

KATE KLISE and M. SARAH KLISE are the fabulous sisterly team behind several picture books and a number of popular middle grade novels, including Regarding the Fountain, an IRA Young Adults' Choice, as well as Trial by Journal and Letters from Camp, an ALA Best Book for Young Adults. Kate, who is also a correspondent for People magazine, lives in Norwood, Missouri. Sarah, who is also an art teacher, lives in Berkeley, California. 

From Booklist:

Principal Russ wants to clean up Geyser Creek Middle School's dilapidated bathrooms before an upcoming conference, but plans go awry when more pressing issues arise: two convicts are on the loose; Chef Angelo's marriage to Angel Fisch may be on the rocks; an international crime ring seems to have a local connection; and the bathrooms may be more than they appear. Students are busy with summer internships, but thanks to their savvy, persistent detective work, the multiple difficulties are overcome. Told through letters, articles, and cartoonlike illustrations, the fourth book in Klise's series, which began with Regarding the Fountain (1998), is another witty, delightful novel with a colorful cast of characters, multiple mix-ups, and mayhem, intertwined with a history of bathrooms stretching back to Roman times, including their uses as social spaces and even galleries. Puns abound, and there are a few bathroom jokes, though nothing really crass enough to compromise an entertaining novel that celebrates community and history. Shelle Rosenfeld
