Derek and Matt have enrolled in an after school elective. Their favorite local YouTuber is teaching them how to record, edit and enhance their videos and then how to post them. Derek is determined to be the student with the most views, but he keeps making dumb decisions about content. Wait, he has a monkey! Everyone loves monkey youTubes - but both his parents have forbidden him to use Frank as his subject. 

This is book 7 in the series, and can stand alone, but of course it's more fun if you've read the others. This book is perfect for the kids looking for other books like Wimpy Kid and Captain Underpants. The stick figure drawing of "vocabulary words" never gets old. Your middle school library should have the whole series!
