In this hilarious and cavity-preventing sequel to Stout Hearts & Whizzing Biscuits, Oliver Stoop enrolls in the boys’ school in Patria, Mastodon Meadow. But almost as soon as he arrives he is caught up in a mystery involving a scandalous and anonymous new student newspaper, the Avenger. And when Oliver and his best friends, Prince Farnsworth and Princess Rose Vesuvius, emerge as the prime suspects behind the mudslinging broadsheet, it will require all the pluck and ingenuity of Vesuvius, Stoop & Co., Detectives, to find the real ink-fingered culprits before they themselves are fingered for the crime!

When Oliver Stoop, age 11, moves with his family to a remote piece of land in northern Indiana, he soon discovers that someone is already living there – an entire kingdom of someones, in fact. These are the good citizens of Patria, a secret land founded by refugees from the Trojan War who sailed across the Atlantic in a reconfigured Trojan Horse – 3,000 years ago!

For Oliver, Patria is a land of wonders – and for the first time in his life, friendship. There’s young Prince Farnsworth Vesuvius, inventor of the Magna-Pneumatic Whizzing Biscuit Blaster, and his formidable sister, Princess Rose, whose inedible, stone-hard biscuits provide the blaster’s ammunition. But there’s also the rest of the eccentric and lovable Patrian Royal Family, the boy warriors in the Potawatomi Indian Camp, not to mention the Viking kids from the Geat Village, newcomers to the area who only arrived 1,000 years ago.

Yet when the noble Knights of the Blue Sock threaten to drive off the Stoops by force of arms, Oliver has to decide where his loyalties lie, and whether he has the courage to undertake the quest that is both Patria’s, and his family’s, last, best hope of peace.

Join Oliver now as he discovers a new world of fun and excitement right in his backyard!
