Fergus and Zeke
author: Kate Messner
illustrator: Heather Ross
Fergus loves being the class pet. When the teacher plans a field trip to a museum, Fergus doesn’t want to miss the fun, so he stows away in a backpack and sets off for an adventure. The museum is a little overwhelming — huge and full of exciting things to see. Luckily, Fergus meets a new friend, Zeke, who knows the ropes, and together they explore everything from moon rocks to butterflies to a giant dinosaur skeleton. But when it’s time for the bus to leave, will Fergus make it back to school to take his place as class pet once more?
“The four chapters of this easy reader zip right along with a straightforward, breezy plot and two charming, mischievous mice leading the way.” — Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
