Brenton, Snik, Kelsey, Judy, and Mr. Murphy are all telling their story to the police department. The story comes out a bit at a time through dialogue from each person.

It seems that the Homework Machine (Simon & Schuster, 2006) that they had tossed over the rim of the Grand Canyon still had an active power chip, and though the machine parts were mostly recovered, that chip remained missing. The shady character, Richard Milner, that they purchased the power chip from wants it back. Then the chip is recovered by their old nemesis, Ronnie Teotwawki, who is trying to build a new homework machine.

The group gets sidetracked by an old newspaper story about a vast Egyptian treasure that may be in a cave inside the Grand Canyon. When they decide to embark on a hunt to find it, they discover that Ronnie has installed the wonderful power chip in his hand-held GPS unit, and partnered with the shady character, Milner, to find the treasure.

The story is exciting and funny with a multi-layered plot. There are the nuts who belong to an online cult that Brenton Damagatchi started online as a prank. They are standing on their heads and eating Twinkies, worshiping Notnerb (Brenton spelled backward), and calling themselves the Canyonists. There are dead people, and drunk people, and Japanese guys wearing trenchcoats who want to retrieve the power chip that they originally sold to Milner.

RETURN OF THE HOMEWORK MACHINE is very entertaining with great characters, a fast-moving plot, and a conclusion that will leave you with much to think about.
