Missy has BIG plans for the class pet . . .well, for three of them! She plans to have a fashion show, create a circus, and even put the pets in their very own parade.

Just like with everything else, Missy takes the class pets home the only way she knows how--the super duper royal deluxe way! This is the second book in this humorous, full-color early chapter book series.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for MISSY'S SUPER DUPER ROYAL DELUXE #1: PICTURE DAY
"[Missy] adores ruffles, striped tights and lots of over-the-top accessories, a fascination that many young female readers will recognize and enjoy." -KIRKUS REVIEWS
Children's Literature - Leona Illig
Missy is a little girl with a problem. She wants to bring some class pets—specifically, rats—home with her, but there are obstacles. First, her Mom is not enthusiastic. She gets around this problem by telling her Mom that the pets that she wants to bring home are cute and cuddly, which is, of course, not true. Secondly, her teacher has already given first pick of the class pets to another girl named Tiffany, who has already chosen the ones that Missy wants. Missy responds by calling the other girl names, and tries to get her friend, Oscar, to help her prevent Missy from getting the pets. Unfortunately for Oscar, Missy only succeeds in getting him into trouble. Missy, however, finally gets her way when Tiffany, who thought that the rats were actually hamsters, decides that she does not want them after all. This is an early chapter book in the "Missy's Super Duper Royal Deluxe" series. It is also part of Scholastic's "Branches" series and, according to the publisher, is written at the grade two reading level and will appeal to first and second graders. Unfortunately, the presentation and the content of the book could have been much better. The pages are often crowded with text of different sizes and fonts, and young readers may have difficulty navigating through it all. The main character, Missy, is a poor role model, and except for Oscar, the other characters are basically stereotypes. Adults may be surprised by the unusual warning on the book, in which Scholastic claims that if someone buys a copy of this book without its dust jacket, the book is stolen property and has been reported to the publisher. Scholastic has been the gold standard for years in publishing quality children's literature. Sadly, the editors seem to have missed the mark on this one. Reviewer: Leona Illig
School Library Journal
Gr 1–3—Of these books, Boris and Class Pets competently fill the gap between easy readers and early chapter books, while Meltdown Madness and Coco are a bit more challenging. Boris really wants a komodo dragon. He writes to the zoo to see if their komodo dragons ever take vacations. Turns out, they don't, and Boris's plans are ruined. He puts his skink in the komodo cage and tries to pass it off as a baby dragon. After it escapes, Boris reopens his letter from the zoo, finds tickets for free admission, and his whole family has an outing. Missy wants to take home the class pets for the weekend but her plans are derailed when a new girl is determined to have what she wants. In the end, Missy bests the bully. Boris's and Missy's stories are told through traditional text, many speech bubbles, and comic-book panels. Both books incorporate full-color artwork throughout. Meltodown Madness looks the most like a traditional early chapter book, with many black-and-white sketches accompanying the text. The young narrator has a magic coin that translates his words into reality (sayings like "money doesn't grow on trees" spawn a dollar bill under the tree). The boy's powers often cause more trouble than good, but in the end he is able to reason his way into a solution. Coco is in the form of a diary and includes black-and-white lists and doodles. The little girl uses her love of baking cupcakes to help save snails from becoming extinct. Words like "extinct" and "fund-raiser" are defined in doodled bubbles. All four books should be popular.—Amy Commers, South St. Paul Public Library, MN

    I just finished Class Pets and I loved it as much as the first book in the series "Picture Day" The book is a stand out just with the illustrations alone but the story keeps you turning pages until the very end.

    Missy is quite a character and I look forward to following her adventures through all four books.
