P.T. and his grandfather are involved in a magazine competition - a "secret shopper" is coming to the motel to determine which venue has Florida's best family friendly activities (the mega-attractions like Disney, Sea World and Universal Studios are not eligible)! So, P.T. and Gloria (whose Dad is vying for a job at ESPN) try to figure out who might be the Secret shopper, and, in the meantime, give everyone who stays at the motel a great time. Enlisting Dill, a new kid whose parents are staying at the motel, the 3 try out all the other local entertainments to check out their competition and better present their motel.

Oh so funny! P.T. is a terrifically funny M.C. - I want to go to one of his events. Full of crazy silly jokes and hilarious situations (ever tried a jet pack?) this is one of my favorites in the "Welcome to Wonderland" series. Book 4, I do recommend starting at the beginning, but if you pick up Beach Battle Blowout, Grabenstein brings the reader in well enough that it can stand on it's own, but why? Get the full series, it will be popular.
