Mr. Lincoln is the coolest principal ever! He knows how to do everything, from jumping rope to leading nature walks. Everyone loves him…except for Eugene Esterhause. "Mean Gene" hates everyone who's different. He's a bully, a bad student and he calls people awful, racist names. Can Mr. Lincoln find a way to get through to "Mean Gene" and show him that the differences between people are what make them special?
