Review - Rotten School: Battle of the Dum Diddys

128 pages; Amazon
Have you ever gotten addicted to a video game? I'm sure that many of us have done just that. Well, the 12th installment of the Rotten School series, Battle of the Dum Diddys, has a similar theme.

The book starts out with the 4th-grader Bernie Bridges being called into Headmaster Upchuck's office. While he doesn't have a clue to why he was asked to be there, he overhears Headmaster Upchuck saying that the school might shut down if the Board of Inspectors doesn't find that the school is up to their standards.

Bernie knows that Rotten School isn't the best boarding school, so that means the school will be closed in less than a week. Will Bernie help to get the school into shape in time for the inspection day?


Bernie is all about himself, and with only a few days until the school will shut down, Bernie is on a quest to make as much money as he can by scheming his fellow classmates. However, his plan comes to a halt when all the students go missing.

Where have the Rotten School students disappeared to?

Well, all the student are addicted to a new video called Wungo Warriors, where there is a battle between the Dum Diddys and the Knighty Knight Knights.

Final Thoughts: I wasn't exactly in the mood to read a book today, but I didn't want to miss this week's Thursday ReReads, so I went ahead and read the 12th installment in the Rotten School series. Before rereading this, I didn't remember too much about he plot. Anyway, I ended up really enjoying this reread. The plot follows a slightly different formula than what was in the past entries and the jokes are funny. Overall, Rotten School: Battle of the Dum Diddys is a perfect read for any gamer, young or old.
