And now we have another character to introduce:
Marpus Silch is the unpopular janitor of Warthogpox High School. No one likes him, and people have tried (and failed) to get him fired from the school for many years.
Anyway, Harry, Pun, and Hildegarde find a treasure trove of hidden books that were ignored in favor of the Larry Dobber books. Within a few seconds, scores of students who were in the library found the books and threw away over 100 copies of the Larry Dobber books.
Mr Silch wasn’t very happy to hear that the kids had given up on Larry Dobber in favor of less popular books and he drags them out of the library. Jill (who could have intervened had she not been distracted by the presence of Wilfy, Tarcey, and Junia) just sits there and does nothing. Jacquel Romanov would have been ashamed of her inaction, and Jacquel Romanov could have prevented the rest of this story from happening…
