Brian Higman, also known as Big Hig, has a problem. He does not have his sloppy copy writing assignment ready to turn in, and his teacher, Miss Fromme, is not one to listen to excuses. But Brian has really good reasons this time. Between the antics of his impossible five-year-old brother and his teenage brother’s rock-and-roll band rehearsing at his house, not to mention the fact that his life savings have gone missing, it was impossible to get any homework done over the weekend. It takes all of Brian’s imaginative powers and storytelling techniques to prevent him from getting a zero. And it takes some inspiration on Miss Fromme’s part to coax Brian into turning his excuse into an actual sloppy copy.
