I would probably want to be friends with the protagonist Hank Zippster because he had a good idea on how to get even with Nick McKelty the school bully. He decided to build a haunted house to scare Nick for making fun of his italian dinner table costume that he spent hours on making. He started by going to buy the things he needed to make the haunted house. Then he enlisted the help of his two best friends. Next all three of them gathered the supplies and started to build the haunted house. He had a skelton and when you touched it the arm fell off. He had mushy brains in a bowl made from overcooked pasta and eyeballs that were peeled grapes soaking in slimy egg whites. Also he had a spider that one of his friends would drop on the bullies head.
