Meet the Stick Dudes! Fresh from their debut in Farticus Maximus and Other Stories That Stink, the Stick Dudes are heading out on their own in a series focusing on humorous antics during the average day in the life of an under-10 year old boy. Ben and his friends spend their first truly hot summer's day in the pool, where they encounter many adventures! Join Ben as he comes under attack from the Pirates of the Tang Sea, as he loses his shorts (how embarrassing!), as he joins his friends in an over-the-fence water-bomb war with the girls next door and more hilarious events!
