the teacher's pet

Things go completely awry when the pet in Mr. Stricter’s classroom—a tiny tadpole named Bruno—strangely grows into a huge beast-like creature.  And worst of all, he has no manners or sense of propriety.  He consumes the children's homework and school supplies, smashes the classroom furniture, snores during silent reading and hogs the swings.  Too enthralled with the idea of having a pet, Mr. Stricter is not at all concerned about Bruno’s ghastly ways—in fact, he adores them and dotes on Bruno.  It’s up to his students to intervene before things go too far.  And that they do—with a dash of creativity and ingenuity, they take matters into their own hands.  A hilarious story that would be a perfect read-aloud for the first week of school—guaranteed to ease back-to-school jitters.

Save & CloseThe Teacher’s Pet was written by Anica Mrose Rissi, illustrated by Zachariah OHora and published by Disney Hyperion Books.
