To Kick a Corpse: The Qwikpick Papers
Preview: Hear it

This hilarious, highly original series, which so astutely captures the odd preoccupations of middle schoolers, will appeal to the many fans of the Origami Yoda series and such grossout classics as How to Eat Fried Worms and Freckle Juice. Lyle Hertzog and his friends Marilla and Dave are the Qwikpick Adventure Society, three kids who seek out big adventures in their seemingly quiet hometown of Crickenburg. Tour a sewage plant? Theyve done it. Break into an abandoned research facility to spot a rat with a human face? Check. But their third exploit just might be their most daring yet. Local legend has it that a slave master was buried standing up in the plantations family tomb. Why? So that he could continue overseeing his slaveseven in death! When the Qwikpickers hear about this, they decide its high time to administer some 200yearoverdue justice and knock him down. Mission Kick a Corpse is on.
