Ages 9-12. Just when Joey Pigzas wired world finally seems to be under control, his good-for-nothing dad pops back into his life. This time, though, Carter Pigza is a new man literally. After a lucky lotto win, Carter Pigza has a crazy new outlook on life, and hes even changed his name to Charles Heinz. He thinks Joey and his mom should become new people, too. Soon Joey finds himself bombarded with changes: a new name, a new home, and a new family business running the beat-up Beehive Diner.
