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 new outdoor adventure in the endearing school-themed series from award-winning author Kate Messner, with lively pictures by Heather Ross, will have young readers jumping for joy.Full-color digital illustrations.

K-Gr 2-Fergus and Zeke continue their adventures, this time in the school's field day challenge. The two mice are eager to participate in the many sporting events, but they find their size makes activities either too easy or too hard. Determined, the clever pair create their own events to take part in the big day. When they are accidentally locked out of the school, all they've learned during the field day helps them make it back to the safety of their classroom home. The text is accessible for emerging readers; each page has corresponding images, so youngsters can draw on the vibrant illustrations to comprehend the plot. The story is targeted for young readers, but there are enough new words introduced like "shimmied" and "billowed" to help expand vocabulary. Ross's illustrations perfectly complement the text and are essential for anyone who has grown to know and love Fergus and Zeke. VERDICT Those unfamiliar with Fergus and Zeke should make them the next addition to their young reader collection. This lovable duo are Frog and Toad for a new generation.-Heidi Dechief
