Description


In the sequel to The Fabled Fourth Graders of Aesop Elementary School by award-winning author Candace Fleming, Mr. Jupiter's rambunctious students are fifth graders now . . . and they rule the school! Bernadette Braggadoccio stirs things up when her investigative reporting for the school's TV station reveals some scandalous stuff. But . . . don't believe everything you hear. For their last year at Aesop, the fifth graders are hoping for the coolest class pet—a unicorn or at least a giant squid. Imagine their disappointment when they get guinea pigs. But . . . appearances can be deceiving.

Here's a chapter book with all the fun and mayhem of Louis Sachar's classic Sideways Stories from Wayside School. Whether you knew Mr. Jupiter's class back in fourth grade or are new to Aesop Elementary, you'll be chomping at the bit to join these fabled fifth graders for the zaniest school year ever.

About the Author


Candace Fleming spent two years researching this book from spending time in archives and libraries to learning how to play a steam calliope, riding an elephant, winning (and wearing) a red rubber nose at the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey circus when it came to Chicago, and even walking the tightrope (two feet off the ground) at Ringling Brothers former winter quarters in Baraboo, Wisconsin.
