IQ stands for intelligence quotient—that's something I do know. I've done the pop-up tests on the Internet. The tests show my IQ is—ta-da!—incredibly average.

When master fact-gatherers TJ and Seymour are asked to join the school Quiz Kids team, TJ thinks Seymour should take the stage at the upcoming contest against the high-pressure Fairview School team.

TJ is already more than occupied rescuing his cats and helping Gran get ready for her upcoming trip to Belize. When he goes with his dad to help with a renovation job on a huge house on Fairview Hill, he and T-Rex tangle with a rich girl and her giant dog, Frooie. Then Seymour develops stage fright, Alaska goes missing and the girl from the big house shows up on the Fairview quiz team. TJ knows he has to sort things out—fast!

TJ and the Quiz Kids is the fifth of five books in a series.
Book one is TJ and the Cats.
Book two is TJ and the Haunted House.
Book three is TJ and the Rockets.
Book four is TJ and the Sports Fanatic.

"An all-around crowd pleaser by one of our nation's most prolific authors. Recommended."
