From the Publisher
As a growing menagerie takes over Miss Fry''s classroom,
students of all species fall head-over-tails for their ever-patient
teacher in Dayle Ann Dodds''s funny story, illustrated with lively
flair by Marylin Hafner.
Monday morning is sharing day in Miss Fry''s class, and children
may bring in a pet to share, "just for the day." Week after week, a
new and wonderful pet comes to "visit" - a crowing rooster, a
crawly tarantula, a cricket that does somersaults - but somehow
ends up staying for a very long time. Soon a host of classroom
critters are mingling happily among the students, and even the
parents are pleased with what they see. "Isn''t it great," they
exclaim, "that Miss Fry loves pets so?" It''s clear that the gentle
Miss Fry is one teacher the kids and parents will never forget! But
what will happen when the school year ends and it''s time for all
of her well-taught pets to say goodbye?
