WARNING: Reading May Be Hazardous To Your Health
The principal of Jill and Gwen's school promised to spend the morning on the roof if the kids read one thousand books during their reading marathon — and they did! Now he's on the roof, and he's going to read an original science fiction story Gwen wrote.
But he could fall off the roof is he doesn't stop sneezing. Is it a coincidence that Gwen's story is about aliens who live on roofs and make humans sneeze? Fletcher knows that Gwen would never pull a dangerous practical joke just to make her story come try. But can he prove it before Gwen's in big trouble?

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-In Elizabeth Levy's first chapter book (Aladdin, pap. 2002), the author brings back Jill and Gwen from her "Something Queer" series, but this time Jill's basset hound Fletcher is the narrator. Fletcher and his friend, Jasper the flea, like the girls and try to keep an eye out for them, especially when there is a lot going on in the neighborhood. Their neighbors, the Pryors, bring a new baby home, making their cat Alice feel unloved. Gwen is writing a story about aliens who make humans sneeze. Finally, the principal has promised to read a story on the roof of the school if the students read a total of 1000 books. Once the goal is reached, he agrees to read Gwen's story-but when he starts sneezing Gwen is accused of trying to sabotage the whole thing. Fletcher and Jasper come to the rescue by climbing up on the roof and discovering the reason for the principal's sneezing. William Dufris and Christine Marshall bring the story to life by giving each character a suitably unique voice. A great addition to primary grade collections.-Veronica Schwartz, Des Plaines Public Library, IL Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
