Combine a trio of 12 year olds-Henry, Riley and Reid-with dares and challenging adventures, and the resulting chaos delivers comedy at its best. Each escapade and comical scene builds towards the proverbial "disaster," with a small sample of their antics involving the contents of a dumpster and some methane gas-a high jinx recipe that only Paulsen could create. Podehl personifies tween boys with his fully voiced performance, and Paulsen narrates the introduction.
