Ms. Frizzle’s class is all set for a fun camping adventure! Arnold, terrified of the Blot Monster he’d seen in a scary movie, brings all the lights he can find. But there’s one problem: he has nowhere to plug them in! Thankfully, Ms. Frizzle has an old generator that she lets him hook the lights up to. However, burning gasoline to power the generator creates pollution, which is bad and attracts the Blot Monster. The class must work together to find a way to create clean energy to power the generator. Through adventures with Ms. Frizzle, the class figures out the great power of wind and water and finds a way to keep their campground lit through the night.
