Fergus and Zeke and the Field Day Challenge

author: Kate Messner
illustrator: Heather Ross

series name:
Candlewick Sparks

Fergus and Zeke love being the class pets in Miss Maxwell’s classroom. From science experiments to art projects, they do everything the students do. But on Field Day, none of the events are the right size for the small mice—the limbo is too easy, the high jump is too hard, and kickball is absolutely terrifying! So Fergus and Zeke create their own Field Day Challenge, with mouse-size tug-of-war, acorn throwing, and Hula-Hooping. After all the fun and exercise, it’s time to go back to the classroom—but Fergus and Zeke are locked out! Will they be able to use their new skills to get inside in time for ice pops? This outdoor adventure in the endearing series from award-winning author Kate Messner, with lively illustrations by Heather Ross, will have young readers jumping for joy.

“A fun, mouse-sized view of the world. . . . Kids will look forward to their own field days after reading about this one.” —Kirkus Reviews
