Fergus and Zeke at the Science Fair

author: Kate Messner
illustrator: Heather Ross

series name:
Fergus and Zeke

Fergus and Zeke love being the class pets in Miss Maxwellís classroom, and they do everything the students do ó listening at storytime, painting masterpieces during art class, and keeping their own special journals. But when itís time for the school science fair, the mice arenít sure just how to get involved. Lucy wants to time them as they run through a maze, but they want to do an experiment, not be an experiment. Then Zeke comes up with a great idea: since Lucy is training animals for her experiment, maybe he and Fergus can do the same thing! Unfortunately, the only animals available are the students themselves. Can Fergus and Zeke turn the tables and train Lucy in time for the science fair?

Charming classroom pets invert expectations with a clever science project that puts a student through her paces.
