The Fabled Fourth Graders of Aesop Elementary School

A fantastic chapter book of contemporary fables about a rumbustious group of fourth graders and their amazing teacher, the globe-trotting Mr Jupiter. There’s Calvin Tallywong, who wants to go back to kindergarten. But when he actually gets the chance, he’s forced to do the squirrel dance and wear a school bus name tag. The moral of his story? Be careful what you wish for. Then there’s Amisha Spelwadi, who can spell wildebeest, no problem. But when Mr Jupiter asks the class to spell cat, all Amisha can come up with is kat. The moral: don’t count your chickens before they hatch! You’ll laugh out loud as you follow the fourth graders through their year, learning the tried-and-true life lessons of this funny and fast-paced book.
