Abstract:
Roy Eberhardt has moved with his family so often he literally has lost count of the number of times he has had to changed schools. Roy ought to be used to being the new kid at school by now, but making the switch from Montana to Florida proves to be a major challenge. While Roy quickly becomes the target of school bully, he is befriended by Beatrice Leep, a spunky girl with enough nerve to stand up to Dana, and her brother Mullet Fingers. Beatrice and Mullet share a big secret with Roy, they have a hidden hideaway where they look after a flock of endanged owls. That is of little concern to Chuck Muckle, a top executive from the Mother Paula's All-American Pancake House chain, who is planning to build a new restaurant in the hollow where the owls nest. The three kids are determined to find a way to save the owls and have a plan. They have uncovered some evidence of some dirty doings tied in to the pancake house.
