Wonderful classroom or library book to share with your students! This book will keep your students laughing (and you too) while it challenges them to problem solve and find a solution to their teacher's pet problem. The Teacher's Pet was written by Anica Mrose Rissi and illustrated by Zachariah Ohora.
When their class tadpoles are big enough, Mr. Stricter tells his students they can keep just one. The class chooses Bruno, the smallest of the bunch. But Bruno doesn't stay that way for long. Soon, he's grown into a giant, classroom-wrecking creature: he eats desks, he farts for show-and-tell, and he sneezes slime all over everything! With Mr. Stricter blinded by love for the pet, the students must step up and take matters into their own heroic hands
