Publisher Summary

On the day the tadpoles hatch, the whole class is amazed—they’ve never seen their teacher so excited. Mr. Stricter has always wanted a pet, so he tells the students they can keep just one. The class chooses Bruno, the smallest of the bunch. But Bruno doesn’t stay small for long. Soon he’s grown into a giant, classroom-wrecking creature: He eats desks, farts for show-and-tell, and sneezes slime all over everything! Everyone can see that Bruno is trouble. Everyone except Mr. Stricter.

With their teacher blinded by love for the pet, the students must step up and take matters into their own heroic hands.

Who Wrote The Teacher's Pet

author
Anica Mrose Rissi

Anica Mrose Rissi grew up on an island off the coast of Maine, where she read a lot of books and loved a lot of pets. After college, she moved to New York City, where she worked as a cheesemonger and book editor. She now tells and collects stories, makes up songs on her violin, and eats lots of cheese with her friends in Princeton, New Jersey, where she lives with her dog, Arugula. As a former editor turned full-time writer, Anica has spoken with kids and adults across the country about all stages of the writing process, from ideas and drafting to revisions and beyond.

Anica is the author of the Anna, Banana chapter-book series, the picture books The Teacher’s Pet and Watch Out for Wolf!, and a YA novel, Always Forever Maybe. Her essays have been published by The Writer magazine and the New York Times, and she plays fiddle in and writes lyrics for the electro-country band Owen Lake and the Tragic Loves. Anica tweets about bookish things at @anicarissi, which is also her handle on Instagram. Find out more at anicarissi.com.
