The Hardy Boys are THE CLUES BROTHERS.
Bayport Elementary School is holding a science fair, and first prize is a gift certificate to a cool store called The Nature Place. The Hardys have projects only a detective could dream up-a fingerprint collection and a special spy-scope. Chet's working on a hot dog cooker powered by the sun. And Mike Mendez is putting a camera in one of his robots to make it a burglar detector.
But when two of the best projects get smashed, bully Zack Jackson blames Billy McGee, the new kid in the 4th grade. Billy CAN be clumsy, but is he really a walking disaster? The robot's eye never lies, but will that be enough to save the science un-fair?
Thirteen year old Willie meets his match when a new kid comes to his school. He's great at everything he does, he makes great inventions, and he's popular. Even Willie's friends are beginning to like him a lot...actually, too much! Willie challenges the new boy to a contest, but can Willie win? More important, what will he give up if he loses? Join Willie for this exciting adventure that shows Willie that God loves each and every person individually.
