Calvin Coconut lives near the beach in Kailua, Hawaii, with his mom and his little sister. Mom says: "You're the man of the house, Cal." Which means: Be responsible. Calvin tries, but fun and trouble follow him wherever he goes, even in the classroom, also known as Mr. Purdy's Fourth-Grade Boot Camp. And how can he be the man of the house after teenage Stella-from-Texas arrives to be the live-in babysitter and steps all over Calvin's turf?
