The Class Trip from the Black Lagoon (Black Lagoon Adventures Series #1) (Turtleback School & Library Binding Edition)by Mike Thaler, Jared Lee
Funny chapter book series about a school where all of the teachers and staff appear to be monsters and the students have overactive imaginations.
Children's LiteratureThe first in the "Black Lagoon Adventures" series is sure to cause a riddle riot with readers everywhere. The text of this early reader is full of puns and quips for a fun introduction to word play. The ongoing adventures of this imagined class trip are full of ferocious animals, over-the-top bugs and monsters, and the meanest of mean teachers, Mrs. Green. Once the kids realize that their real class trip is simply to the zoo, nothing can be as bad as what they have already imagined. The sticker page seems a little out of place for this type of book, but the zany illustrations are a perfect complement to the wacky adventures. Readers will enjoy from the first page to the last. 2002, Scholastic Inc, Ages 7 to 10.

The Class Trip from the Black Lagoon (Black Lagoon Adventures Series #1) based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
A child¿s imagination soars as he/she reads about history and science facts and actual places that exist. The illustrations are brought to life as the child¿s creative mind absorbs educational information but don¿t close your eyes. Their mind may wonder to the bottom of the ocean or take a journey to the center of the earth. Could the center of the earth be like hot fudge on a sundae? The class trips are adventures that all children will not want to miss as they read how Mrs. Green lines up her students alphabetically while flying in a plane. She opens the planes door hatch, checks the children¿s parachutes and pushes them out. The students are graded on their ground landings.
