Charlie has a bag full of videos he lifted from his dadís closet. Sidneyís on the run from two guys in a pick-up truck. Grandpa Anderson wants to eat something other than potatoes. And Jeffrey just wants a little peace and quiet. These are the Bachelors. Three boys and a grumpy grandfather living together for five days while Jeffreyís mother takes his grandma to the hospital. Throw in a few unexpected--and uninvited--visitors and the kids from karate class have another adventure on their hands. They also have a job to do. Grandpa Anderson might be old and a wee bit crusty, but heís also lonely, scared and not exactly a picture of health himself. It is their job to take care of him, and, with a style that is uniquely their own, they do. The Bachelors continues the story of the three small-town misfits introduced in Frog Face and the Three Boys and One Missing Finger. After learning how to cope with conflict and then young love, Charlie, Sidney and Jeffrey are now learning about self-sufficiency and responsibility.
