WARNING: Reading May Be Hazardous To Your Health
The principal of Jill and Gwen's school promised to spend the morning on the roof if the kids read one thousand books during their reading marathon -- and they did! Now he's on the roof, and he's going to read an original science fiction story Gwen wrote.
But he could fall off the roof is he doesn't stop sneezing.
From School Library Journal:
Here, basset hound Fletcher and his flea sidekick Jasper solve a new case. Fletcher's narration includes many humorous observations about human behavior. The comic line drawings and decorative typeface (indicating Alice "singing the blues") hit the right note. A solid selection.
