Thomas Fallgrout always thought of himself as a regular kid until he accidentally creates a little bit of magic using his grandpa's old potions. Suddenly, he's pulled from public school and enrolled in Pennybaker Academy for the Uniquely Gifted. Life is uprooted when a statue of the great Helen Heirmauser goes missing --- and everyone thinks Thomas is behind its disappearance. As his new friends turn on him, Thomas finds himself pairing up with his oddball next door neighbor Chip Mason. Together they work to hunt down the missing statue...only to discover that maybe what they've both needed to find all along was true friendship.

Sixth-grader Thomas Fallgrout is finally settling in at Pennybaker School, home of students with unique and unusual gifts. After a bit of an unusual start to the school year, things are finally starting to seem normal. Until his Facts After the Fact (aka History) teacher Mr. Faboo goes missing. And Thomas’s neighbor, Chip (he of the wacky sock collection), swoops in and bonds with all of Thomas’s friends, leaving Thomas in the dust. This year is getting out of control, and it’s up to Thomas to take matters into his own hands. It’s time…for a revolution.
