(From the publisher):
Jasper Gordon loves school. He loves getting his new textbooks. He loves ripping into the first assignment of the year. Butch and Spike Couture don't love school. They don't love new textbooks -- or old ones, either. And they'd just as soon rip up the first assignment of the year as rip into it. Jasper's heard all about "the Cootches." Everyone has. But he never expects to be sitting right between them on the first day of sixth grade.
He never expects to be caught right between the Cootches and their teacher, Mrs. McNulty, either. But that's where he finds himself when "the McNutt" vows on the first day of school to put an end to Butch's and Spike's careers as class misfits. Mrs. McNulty thinks that all students should be like Jasper, and at first, Jasper couldn't agree more. But after a year of having the Couture cousins overrun his life, at lunch, on field trips, at recess, and even in his own home, Jasper is in real danger of being turned to the Cootch side.
