Mark moves to New Hampshire and to a small school called Hardy Elementary.  His science teacher, Mr. Maxwell, doesn’t like him.  Mr. Maxwell thinks Mark is a rich, spoiled kid.

At first Mark wants nothing to do with the Hardy’s famous week in the woods led by Mr. Maxwell.  Once Mark begins to open up to life in the country, he changes his mine about the trip.  He thought it would be fun to learn something new and he might even enjoy it.

Mark buys all new camping gear and is ready to meet some new friends.  But things go all wrong for him.

The week in the woods is not what they had planned, especially not Mr. Maxwell.

This is a great, exciting adventure tale from start to finish.
