Wouldn’t it be fun to bring your pet to school? Now imagine if EVERYONE brought their pet to school! That’s exactly what happens in this hilarious picture book! A lighthearted, perfect read for back to school–no matter what that looks like! When pets show up with their kids at Maple View Elementary, it’s total chaos! These animals have no respect for school rules, and every class quickly gets out of hand. But why did they show up in the first place? Who said they could come? Could it have been…the pets themselves? It turns out they just wanted in on the fun! Now, if they want to stay, they’ll just have to behave…. Linda Ashman’s bouncy, rhyming text lends itself perfectly to an exuberant classroom read-aloud, and Suzanne Kaufman’s playful art is full of hilarious details. A great way to generate enthusiasm for school, this book will easily find a place in pet lovers’ hearts.
