FERRET IN THE BEDROOM, LIZARDS
IN THE FRIDGE
New York : Holiday House,
IL 3-6, RL 4.7
house is a zoo, literally. Her father, a zoologist, has filled the
place with animals. There are turtles in the kitchen, lizards on
the porch, a ferret named Fred in the bedroom, and a hawk in the shed,
just to name a few. These animals have been causing Liz problems
for years. It all began in the first grade when she took one of her
father's lizards to school for show and tell. The lizard escaped
in the classroom earning Liz the horrible nickname, Liz-ard. What's
worse, now Liz's friends are afraid to come to her house. Who could
blame them? After all, Mr. T, the turtle, did wet on Tina, right
square in the middle of her white blouse with the purple polka dots.
April's discovery of dead lizards in the freezer didn't help matters either.
Liz tried to explain that they were only her father's specimens but no
one would listen. They were too busy squealing and screaming.
Liz has had enough! The animals must go or she'll never win the election
for sixth grade class president. Will Liz ever be able to convince
her father to get rid of his beloved animals? What other animal disasters
will she face in the meantime? Will Liz-ard become class president?
