Cover: Oopsy, Teacher!

Mr. Bungles is having a bad day just like he did in Calmenson’s earlier book about Mr. Bungles, Late for School (2008). He bumps his head to start his day and then gets soap in his eyes and jam on his tie, and when he finally gets to school the classroom hamster, Nibbles, is on the loose! Mr. Bungles and his students are on the run after the hamster – around the school, around the track, and into town where they find him at the local pizza shop happily nibbling on some pepperoni. Yoshikawa’s bright and playful illustrations complement the humor and fast action of the story. This will be a good read aloud and maybe an introduction to taking care of the class pet. Calmenson likes to write early school stories and more can be found at her publisher’s website or at her own website. Another new book from author Stephanie Calmenson is the interactive response book Ollie’s School Day; a yes-and-no book.
