What do you do when you don't have a paleontologist in the family to lend you a dinosaur bone for show and tell?  Poor Clyde!  It is the night before show and tell day, and he is wondering if he can be absent so he won't have to face his class with something totally boring. Desperate, he checks the basement for ideas and finds a strange furry ball. For lack of anything better, but not knowing what it is, he boxes it up to take to class.  His teacher points out that mystery objects can turn out to be the most interesting.  Read this book to find out how her prediction comes true in a most delightful surprise.  (Jeannie Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards)
