Geyser Creek Middle School's cafeteria sink is clogged, and the smell is . . . well, P-U-trid. Of course, the savvy sixth-grade class knows just who can create a fabuloso new sink--Florence Waters, who designed the school's OTT (over-the-top) water fountain. But the famous fountain designer (and, more important, their good friend) has gone missing! Undeterred, these kids follow their hearts and noses all the way to China to find Florence . . . and sniff out a few stinkers along the way.

Sisters Kate and Sarah Klise have created a hilarious, touching, and thoroughly original sequel to Regarding the Fountain. Told in letters, newspaper articles, and BEAN-mails, this story is guaranteed to make you laugh until beans fly out your nose!
