Bernie Bridges is the most popular fourth grader at the Rotten School. And he has almost everything anybody could want: His friend Belzer brings him breakfast in bed every morning. He is the only student who has his own room in the school dorm. He even has a heated waterbed to sleep on. And he has two friends-Feenman and Crench-who help him carry out his schemes and plots, no matter how horrible. But there is one thing Bernie does not have.
Bernie does not have goody-goody Sherman Oaks' new watch. Sherman's mega-rich parents sent him an amazing solid-gold digital watch with forty-two functions. Bernie drools over it. He has to have it!
With a little plotting and a lot of scheming, Bernie hatches a plan to get that watch! It involves a huge, hairy student named Beast and a blueberry pie-eating contest. Bernie knows that the contest will be messy. He knows it will be disgusting. He knows that there may be a lot of blueberry barf. But Bernie doesn't care-it's time to EAT PIE! Book jacket.
