Jim Benton, bestselling author of Dear Dumb Diary and Franny K. Stein, brings us a fresh new middle-grade novel about breaking all the rules! There's nothing Jake likes more than some good trash-picking, so when his elderly neighbors move out and leave an especially promising-looking pile of household refuse on the curb, he goes right for it. He only has the chance to grab one box before his mom catches him and orders him in for dinner, though. When mysterious goings-on begin to occur in the neighborhood, the trio investigates the hidden box from Jack's garage. In it, they find the Secret Parent's Handbook and with it all the means to subvert the irrational rules and petty tyranny of their home lives. No more clean rooms! No more vegetables! No more brushed hair or washed hands! It's all video games and junk food all the time! But the authorities -- and the resistance -- have taken notice of the strange goings-on in Jack and his friends' neighborhood. And they are closing in . . .

In fact, he's been nearly everything (definitely not A Guy Who Cleans Up Bedrooms yet). But his newest gig is beautifuller (yes, that's a word. He's also a Licensed Wordmaker). He can make anyone gorgeous, with a gob of his beauty treatment (complete with Mustard Molecules). But before he can work his beautifuller magic, he's vaporized (along with his associate, the very fluffy Dumpylumps) by a video game. Will Victor ever get back to Earth? Also, is it someone's birthday . . . and will there be cupcakes?
