New York Times bestselling author Ralph Lazar presents a hilarious action comedy for chapter book readers about Dash Candoo, who must defeat extraordinary foes every school day.

For Dash Candoo, every day is... DANGEROUS!

There is no such thing as a boring day for Dash Candoo.

On Monday, before he can even enjoy his cereal and wombat juice, he is attacked by a squad of combat-ready scallywags and the two-tailed Devil Cat.

And that is just before breakfast. The adventure explodes when Dash gets to school and must deal with a number of Total Mayhem Situations, including a missing Wobble-Ball trophy and the disappearance of one of the most expensive bottles of perfume in the world.

Where will it all lead?
