The Last Burp of Mac McGerp by Pam Smallcomb
Mac McGerp is the best burper in his town. In fact, he's won numerous awards and has become the town hero for putting their town on the map. Mac's dream is to open up a "Burp and Surf" shop in the Bahamas with his bestfriend after winning the national burping contest.
Everything is going great for Mac and his bestfriend Lido Katz until the new school principal, Mrs. Goodbody, arrives. The strict principal has her eye on becoming a board member of the school and will do anything to ensure it happens ... including bullying the students -- especially Mac McGerp whom she's threatened to expel if he so much as utters a burp even once. If he's expelled, his parents will ship him off to a private school and his Burp and Surf dreams will be over. Mac's burps are strong enough to move trees, animals, vehicles and children great distances... holding them in is next to impossible. The only choice he has is to get Mrs. Goodbody to leave the school.
