In this hilarious novel, written in the voice of eighth-grader Wyatt Palmer, Dave Barry takes us on a class trip to Washington, DC. Wyatt, his best friend, Matt, and a few kids from Culver Middle School find themselves in a heap of trouble-not just with their teachers, who have long lost patience with them-but from several mysterious men they first meet on their flight to the nation's capital. In a fast-paced adventure with the monuments as a backdrop, the kids try to stay out of danger and out of the doghouse while trying to save the president from attack-or maybe not.

very funny and mysterious.

Read this book if you want a great laugh! I really enjoyed it, especially being from Miami which is where the characters are from and then they fly to Washington DC on their 8th grade fieldtrip that goes crazy! One of my all time favorite books!

The Worst Class Field Trip Ever Dave Berry Have you ever been on a class field trip? Well in this book Wyatt and Matt (protagonists) leave with their class to Washington DC from Miami Florida. All Wyatt wants to do is not let Matt embarrass him in front of his crush Suzan (another protagonist), On the plane there they see these weird guys and Matt messed up, big time. Matt thought the in weird guys backpack there was a bomb but it was a giant paper mache dragon head. The next day they see them at the White House sneaking around, they see Matt and Wyatt and start chasing them, But they made it to their bus in time. On my the bus on the way back to the hotel Matt tells Wyatt that he stole something that he thought was a bomb detonator (conflict). That night the weird guys come to there hotel room and kidnap Matt! (conflict) Luckily Suzan had kept it in her purse, after Cameron (a kid in Wyatt's hotel room, also a protagonist) has his dad that tell him it's a jammer (jams missiles to go to unwanted targets) they think the guys plan to bomb the White House. They try and form a plan to save the president and the White House.(turning point) They are also trying to save Matt but will they ever see him again? I really recommend this book to EVERYONE. The protagonists are the ones mentioned before and someone you don't expect. The antagonist is another person you won't expect, if I tell you who they are it will ruin the whole book for you. Another conflict is where they have is at the end where there is an epic showdown at the White House again don't want give anything away. Like I said before I would recommend this book to everyone and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

It's time for the annual Washington D.C. eighth grade field trip, and Wyatt wants to take this time to relax and impress Suzana DelGado. But when he is seated next to Matt, the bus ride is anything but relaxing. On the way there, the boys spot two mysterious men seated behind them, talking about the White House. As they move through the city, they spot the men over and over again. Are the men plotting to destroy the White House? Can Wyatt and Matt save the president? Find out in this five-star book written by Dave Barry.

While getting into heaps of trouble in their class trip to the nation's capital, Wyatt and a few of his friends attempt to save the president from what they think is an attack.

ha ha ha lol. This book was pretty good. I would totally recommend this book to all book lovers old and young. . . .

I want to red it because to me every field trip we had was fun and educational to all. since I want to read it I'm going to pick this as a prize

I read this book with my mom and enjoyed it. It was a wonderful book about a kid named Wyatt Palmer who goes on a field trip to Washington. While he's there he goes through many adventures and ends up saving the president.
