Bartholomew and the Oobleck Summary

How It All Goes Down

Bartholomew and the Oobleck is all about what happens when a tyrant king demands that the weather be more interesting. The only problem? He doesn't care about what happens to everyone that his crazy, kooky new weather patterns affect. That is one bad boss.

And of course, we can't forget about the whip smart kid, a page boy named Bartholomew, who doesn't find this kookiness amusing.
