Publisher Description:
Here's what you need to know about Phineas L. MacGuire, boy-scientist

extraordinaire, aka Mac:

1. He's allergic to purple, telephone calls, and girls, and can prove

it.

2. He's probably the world's expert on mold, including which has the

highest stink potential.

3. He does not have a best friend. He does, however, have an un-best

friend, who he does not -- repeat, "not" -- want to upgrade to

best friend status.

But disaster strikes when his teacher pairs Mac and his un-best friend

together for the upcoming science fair. Worse, this un-best friend wants

the project to be on dinosaurs, which is so third grade. Worse still, it

seems as though everyone else in his class finds the un-best friend as

unlikeable as Mac does. But, being a boy-scientist, once Mac notices

this, he just might have to do some investigating....
