Jimmy's boa constrictor wreaks havoc on the class trip to a farm.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble Staff
A little girl tells her mother (in true elementary school style) about her boring class field trip to the farm. Indeed, it seems boring until Jimmy pulls out his pet boa constrictor to meet all the animals. A kid's free-for-all ensues--eggs are thrown, pigs brought on to the bus, a cow cries, and the boa eats the laundry off the line--making this far from a typical class field trip. Kellogg's illustrations of friendly animals, gleeful kids, and distraught adults are right on the mark.
