The Copycats and the Tattletales are back and getting ready for the spring fundraiser, an egg hunt that has more than its share of twists and turns.  The new student Thud Tweed is a bully and he's roped in a former member of each group into his own group, the Three Rotten Eggs.  They've got the hen, Doozy Dorking, incubating the three eggs they found after a stranger's motorcycle crashed, caught fire and incinerated the other four eggs.  What they don't know yet is that these are no ordinary eggs.  They are genetically altered eggs, stolen by an activist group from their lab in Boston and are sought by Professor Einfinger.  Let me assure you, these are no ordinary chicks, unless breathing fire is a quality you prize in fuzzy peeps.  But I'm giving too much away.  Read Three Rotten Eggs and decide for yourself if you haven't just read the wildest, funniest school story in the New England area.  (New Hampshire Great Stone Face Committee)
