Short Summary[]

Greg hides his rival school's goat mascot in his attic room, but the other kids think he has a girl in his room.


A big football game between Westdale High and Coolidge High is upcoming, but an equally big rivalry between the two team occurs off the field when Coolidge steals Westdale's mascot, a bear cub. In retaliation, Westdale steals Coolidge's mascot, a nanny goat named Raquel. Greg is tasked with hiding Raquel at least until after the game, which he does in his bedroom.

Keeping Raquel a secret in the house may be a difficult task. Greg thinks his dad will understand, since Mike also pulled such a prank when he was in high school, but was suspended for it. An unsympathetic Carol and some of the other mothers and the boys' stern vice-principal Mr. Binkley hold an emergency PTA meeting to decide what form of punishment is appropriate, once the mascot-stealing culprits are found. Mike finds out about Raquel and suggests to Greg to set up a secret exchange of mascots with the other school. A last minute PTA meeting at the Brady house ruins their plans, and they must hide Raquel from the group. They are eventually caught, and Greg's vice principal Mr. Binkley orders Greg to write a five-thousand-word report on mascot stealing.

Afterwards, Mike recalls to Mr. Binkley how he was suspended for a week, when he stole the rival team's mascot. Mr. Binkley then reveals he was suspended for a month for doing the same thing!
