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!

Grade 4-6–In this sequel to Regarding the Fountain (HarperCollins, 1998), Florence Waters, the artist who designed the school fountain, is needed to design a new cafeteria sink, but she is missing. Finding her becomes the focus of the sixth-grade class from Geyser Creek Middle School in Missouri. A U.S. Senator, the principal's rich mother, Chinese Sinkiang Blinking Spotted Suckerfish, big business, and beans all play a role in this mystery that eventually leads to a class trip to China. The story is conveyed through letters, student drawings and poems, advertisements, e-mails, school assignments, facsimiles, stock reports, newspaper articles, a variety of other kinds of documents, and cartoons. Each page is designed to look like the kind of document it represents. Piecing the story and clues together is satisfying. Introduce this book to savvy readers who are ready for the jump to a clever, unconventional reading experience.–Jean Gaffney, Dayton and Montgomery County Public Library, Miamisburg, OH
