KIRKUS REVIEW

This amusing sequel to Regarding the Fountain (1999) parodies politics, business, and beans. The cafeteria sink at Geyser Creek Middle School is clogged and stinky. The sixth-graders want Florence Waters to design a replacement, perhaps one that includes an aromatherapy bar or a bean demolisher. But Florence is missing! She vanished on a trip to China investigating the rare Sinkiang Blinking Spotted Suckerfish, and the sixth-graders are determined to find her. Meanwhile, the price of ice cream skyrockets, school lunches are replaced with beans, and AIR-igate, Inc. promises to replace unexpected weather with man-made nighttime rain. The intrepid heroes must rescue Florence, solve the mysteries of beans and Spotted Suckerfish, and get a new sink for the school cafeteria, all on their class trip’s budget. Told in letters, notes, news reports, and drawings, a pun-filled adventure loaded with fun. (Fiction. 9-13)
