A very, very stupid thing to do. Jasper McPhee wished he hadn’t done it. He wished he hadn’t even thought about doing it. But he had. The stupid thought had scuttled into his head, and before he had a chance to shoo it back out, he had done it. And now he was in serious trouble. Jasper has not had a good start to the yearthe prefects are out to get him, he hasn''t done his homework, and a bunch of vicious monsters are laying their eggs all over his school. Jasper and his friends need to stop the monsters'' eggs from hatching before it''s too late and they take over, but hunting these monsters is more dangerous than Jasper realizes. The hatchlings need to eat something, and it could be him!
