The kids told their teacher Mr. Harrison that their fungus experiment was getting out of control. He didn't believe them, until it ate their school! After a rainy spring vacation, the kids return to find that the school has been taken over by a humongous fungus. The fungus now presides in the principal's office and is serving a fungus lunch in the cafeteria. Thankfully, Mr. Harrison knows just who to call. Fungus expert Professor Macademia arrives to study this previously undiscovered strain of fungus. In the end, Mr. Harrison decides not to do any more experiments with fungus for a while!

While the students are home for spring vacation, the fungus they are growing in their classroom grows and grows and takes over the entire school.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
The fungus that the students are growing as experiments in Mr. Harrison's class gets out of control during a rainy spring vacation. IT spreads everywhere and begins to devour everything. Luckily the special branch of the Sanitation Department, the Fungus Unit, cleans up the school. Our narrator's fungus is taken to the Museum of Fungus and Industry, and the class gets a special reward. This wild, zany story meets a worthy illustrator with Catrow's extremely exuberant, Dr. Seuss-ish fungus visualized in sickening super-realism. This slapstick comedy is sure to tickle the funnybones. A more serious note from the author fills in fungus facts. 2000, Scholastic Press, Ages 5 to 8, $15.95. Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz—Children's Literature
Kirkus Reviews
A science project literally mushrooms out of control in this wildly funny twist on a building problem common to more than a few schools. After a particularly rainy spring break, students and teachers walk unsuspectingly into a school that has been transformed into a fungal jungle, with pullulating masses of mottled `IT` covering everything from books to bulletin boards. Dorros (A Tree is Growing, 1997) tells the tale with poker-faced brevity; Catrow (Rotten Teeth, 1998), coloring Seussian tangles of tentacled fuzz with garish splashes of reds, greens and purples, creates scenes of unbridled chaos in each room from lunch area to library. What to do? `IT` stands no chance once the local sanitation department's Fungus Unit rushes in, armed with scrapers and bottles of `Fun-go Fast.` It all ends on a happy, even triumphant note, as the school is quickly restored to normal—and the responsible science project even wins a Golden Moldy award from the Museum of Fungus and Industry. There's a lesson here somewhere . . . well, maybe not. (Picture book. 7-9)
