In this hilarious novel written in the voice of eighth-grader Wyatt Palmer, Dave Barry takes us on a class trip to Washington, DC.

Wyatt, his best friend Matt and a few kids from Culver Middle School find themselves in a heap of trouble—not just with their teachers, who have long lost patience with them—but from several mysterious men they first meet on their flight to the nation’s capital.

In a fast-paced adventure with the monuments as a backdrop, the kids try to stay out of danger and out of the doghouse while trying to save the president from attack—or maybe not.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Check your disbelief at the TSA line for this hilarious jaunt from Miami to Washington, DC…Pulitzer-winner Barry has the comic sensibility of a middle-school class clown. Expect to have lots of trouble keeping this one on the shelf.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “A trip to Washington, DC…becomes a frantic round of chases, attacks, rescues, narrow escapes, and desperate ploys…The escapade culminates in a climactic melee featuring a snake, a fork, a really big kite, the president of the United States, and video footage that boosts Wyatt’s Twitter account from 2 followers to 4.7 million. Readers can only hope their own class trips turn this exhilarating.”

    Booklist

  • “The students’ antics are slapstick, and the humor is right out of an eighth-grade mind…This is a light, hilarious romp that will be hard to keep on the shelves.”

    VOYA

  • “Barry perfectly captures the tone of concerns and conversations for this age group, right down to the fart humor. Boys will love this book, and it would be a great recommendation for reluctant readers. But there is a brave and resourceful girl character here, too, so this entertaining tale will have wide appeal.”

    Children’s Literature

  • “Barry’s trademark humor shines in this tale of a field trip gone hilariously wrong. While Wyatt’s adventures occasionally push the boundaries of credulity, his escapades are so funny that readers are likely to be forgiving. Verdict: With its wacky humor and mildly suspenseful scenarios, this appealing book will be a good fit for most libraries.”

    School Library Journal

  • “The novel’s ludicrous scenario is met with an equally comic tone, making for a fast-paced, easy read. The author supplies these kids with enough smarts to get out of jams but enough vulnerabilities to keep readers engaged…A light, comic tone and more-or-less believable stakes make for a winning combination.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Narrator Todd Haberkorn’s gravelly, slightly nasal voice is perfect for Wyatt, one of a pair of goofballs taking part in the annual eighth-grade class trip…Haberkorn creates memorable character voices, and his comedic timing is well suited for Dave Barry’s signature style of screwball comedy.”
