Artie King and his friends Wayne and Percy attend Camelot Middle School. When they accidentally break the window of mean principal Mrs. Dagger's new car, they have to come up with some way to pay for it. The school's annual Dragon Day robot jousting tournament provides the perfect opportunity to earn the money they need, but entering means going up against the nastiest bunch of cheating bullies in the entire school: The Horde. Will Artie and his friends be able to play fair and still beat the Horde, or will they give in to the temptation and cheat themselves? Ages 8-11 128 pages
