Artie King just wants to ease into life at Camelot Middle School. He's got new lunch buddies, Percy and Wayne, and his science teacher, Mr. Merlyn, is pretty cool. But then there's scary Principal Dagger and big bad Joe and the Horde, a bunch of brawny bullies who rule the school.
The real trouble starts when Artie opens a funky old locker that no one, not even Joe, has ever been able to open - and finds it full of mysterious but useful stuff. Percy and Wayne are high-fiving, Joe is fuming, and next thing you know a challenge is laid down: A do-or-die dodgeball game, the Horde vs. the Knights of the Lunch table.
Losers get creamed!
