Cap Anderson was home-schooled on the Garland Farms commune until he began attending Claverage Middle School.

Calvin Schwa has a unique problem - nobody knows he is there. When Antsy and his friends discover this, they decide to run experiments to see just how 'invisible' the Schwa is. They ask him to perform all sorts of daring tasks, including standing in the boys' bathroom in a day-glow orange sombrero and cat costume, singing 'God Bless America' at the top of his voice. When the Schwa is dared to break into the apartments of an elderly, crotchety restaurant owner, the boys get quite a surprise-the Schwa is seen! This leads Antsy and the Schwa into a new and exciting experience.

Toby is in big trouble. He has just sold his father's prized blaster pistol, used in the Star Wars movies by Han Solo and autographed by Harrison Ford, on eBay. He wanted the money for an upgraded computer he could use to play online games. The problem is that the purchaser, D. Arthur Vaderian, has found out who Toby is and wants his money back. The only way Toby can see to make that money is by winning the Hubble Middle School science fair, with the prize award of $5,000.00. Little does he know that the science fair is being used by the little-known Eastern European country, Krpshtskan, to engineer a national calamity of epic proportions. Before he can plan his project, Toby will be suspended from school, arrested as a spy and turned invisible using heretofore-unknown technology in his attempt to make things right.
