Who didn’t want a class pet as a kid? I know I loved the idea, and in some of my classes I was fortunate enough to have many class pets.
I was also fortunate enough to never have a pet quite like Fluffity!
I’m excited to share my review of this great new picture book from Abrams Books for Young Readers, and as an added bonus….tomorrow I’ll post my interview with author Erica S. Perl!
Ferocious Fluffity (2016, Abrams Books for Young Readers, Picture Book)
Mr. Drake’s second-grade class gets the cutest, fluffiest, best pet ever! Fluffity! A hamster seems like a great idea, but the class soon discovers the hamster is anything but sweet. Chasing the students from one class to another, Fluffity is all bite and no bark. Can the class escape Fluffity’s vicious teeth or will the hamster bite everything (and everyone) in sight?
Ferocious Fluffity, written by Erica S. Perl and illustrated by Henry Cole, is a raucous, rhyming tale of a classroom pet. Every child loves the idea of a classroom pet, and hamsters are especially popular. The story maintains a fun and frantic pace, as students scramble to avoid Fluffity. Children will love the crazy antics of Fluffity and the accompanying illustrations. This would be a great back-to-school or classroom read, as it will likely get lots of laughs when read aloud to a group of children.
Thank you to Abrams Books for Young Readers for a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
