Profile Picture

Charley Maplewood has never been one for parties--that would require friends, which he doesn't have. But now that he's turning ten--the big one-oh--he decides to throw a birthday party for himself, complete with a "House of Horrors" theme and a big birthday cake. Of course things don't work out as Charley plans. In trying to make friends, he ends up inviting the class bully Cougar to come, and that's before he ruins the cake and burns down the garage.
