The father-and-son team behind Mr. Maxwell's Mouse and Mrs. Marlowe's Mice delivers an entertaining father-and-son story about tabloid culture that will delight even the most hardened skeptics. Youthful doubter and know-it-all Hayward Palmer is accompanying his father -- a reporter for the sensationalistic Daily Comet -- on a "Go to Work with a Parent Day." Hayward has a rational explanation for all the weird and wacky things they encounter ? until he finally comes face to face with an ENORMOUS fact he can't explain. And if Hayward doesn't start believing fast, it could be too late -- for him and his dad!
