Recess is ready to rumble—AGAIN.
A super villain is unleashing hordes of vampires, werewolves, and more to take over recess once and for all. Meanwhile, rifts have developed among our heroes: Yoshi is now leader of the pirates, Scrap has a new sidekick, and Clinton is haunted by a traumatic event from the past involving an evil dentist.
Will they unite to defeat the mysterious super villain? Can they harness the power of "the jinx" and use it to overcome their enemies? Maybe most importantly of all, who is the mysterious Simon? And why does everyone do what he says?
From the creator of the hit series Diary of a 6th Grade Ninja, Marcus Emerson, Recess Warriors 2: Bad Guy Is a Two-Word Word is another surefire win.

Praise for Recess Warriors: Hero is a Four-Letter Word
“Emerson creates a rich world full of epic adventures and hilarious one-liners . . . It’s highly imaginative and strikingly familiar to the real games kids play.

This archly funny, spot-on comic adventure will hit home for elementary-school kids far and wide.” —Booklist, starred review
