My Weird School: Class Pet Mess!

(4) K-3 I Can Read Book series. Illustrated by Jim Paillot. Tomboy Alexia is assigned to feed class pet Bob, a snake. During show-and-tell, other students' pets wreak havoc until Bob is scared into playing dead (much to Alexia's relief, "Bob is fine!"). Forced humor drags down the slim story, but full-color cartoon illustrations capture the frenetic energy of this easy reader aimed at kids not quite ready for the chapter books.
