The Teachers Pet by Anica Rissi -ADVISABLE

Rissi, Anica The Teachers Pet, PICTURE BOOK. Disney, 2017.  $18.
Mr. Stricter is a great teacher who also happens to have always really wanted a pet. After the class releases their tiny science project critters into the wild, Mr. Stricter decides to keep one. It becomes the class pet. Its unruly, destructive, and beloved by Mr. Stricter, who is able to overlook its many faults. The students are not happy and it will take a major disaster to help them band together and solve the problem of the class pet.  
This book is hilarious! I was surprised over and over and thoroughly enjoyed this book. I think students will be rolling in the isles and learn some valuable lessons about speaking up and making tough decisions. The artwork is a dated style, sort of 70’s but actually fits perfectly with the story.
