Worst Mascot Ever

(3) 1-3 Big Idea Gang series. Illustrated by Stephen Gilpin. A group of third graders form the Big Idea Gang and convince their schoolmates to ditch their traditional armadillo mascot for a dragon (Mascot); the group then persuades their school to add two buddy benches to the playground to help students find new friends (Buddy). The short, heavily illustrated chapter books contain a solid dose of learning along with the appealing contemporary-school-story plots. Review covers these Big Idea Gang titles: Everybody Needs a Buddy and Worst Mascot Ever.
