Ellray Jakes Walks the Plank! by Sally Warner- ESSENTIAL

Warner, Sally. Ellray Jakes Walks the Plank!  Illustrated by Jamie Harper.  128 pgs.  Viking Juvenile, 2012.  $14.99. Language- G, Mature Content- G, Violence- G.

This book is about a boy named Ellray. It is his turn to take the class pet home.  He takes the fish home and decides to let his sister feed it for a day.  She over-feeds the fish and the fish dies.  How will Ellray ever explain what happened when he goes back to school on Monday?  I liked the illustrations in this book.  I liked that it was written in a humorous way.  It was different from anything I had ever read before.
