New York : HarperCollins,
IL 3-6, RL 5.5
is just sitting in class during auditions for the class play when she realizes
that Dwayne, her enemy since her first day in school, is trying out for
Tarzan. He gives a wimpy little yell ah-ah-ah, like you would do
at the doctor’s office according to Dorothy. So Dorothy decides to
try out for the part of Tarzan herself. She stands up and something
wild comes over her. She throws back her head, her hands go to her
chest, and she yells AHHHHH-AHH-AHH-AAHH-AHHHHH-AHH-AHH-AHH-AHHHHHHHHHH!
After that there was no doubt in anyone’s mind who will play Tarzan.
Dorothy’s yell gets bigger and bigger each time she does it. At first
it seems to wake up the class hamster that no one has been able to get
moving for weeks, then it attracts the neighborhood dogs and cats to her
house, but when the circus comes to town – well, you can imagine what it
attracts then. If not, read the book! (Beth Lindsay, Senior
