Ferret in the Bedroom, Lizards in the Fridge by Bill Wallace

Liz's house is like a zoo. Thanks to her dad, a zoologist, there are turtles in the kitchen, an ibex in the backyard, a hawk in the shed, a sun porch full of lizards — and Fred the ferret.
Liz has had enough! At school, her nickname is Lizard. Her classmates think she's weird and her friends are afraid to go to her house. WIth problems like those, how is she ever going to win the election for class president?
Liz tries her hardest, but she runs into one disaster after another. So she makes the startling decision — the animals must go. Even Fred, her pet ferret. That will make all the difference in the world...won't it?

About the Author

Bill Wallace grew up in Oklahoma. Along with riding their horses, he and his friends enjoyed campouts and fishing trips. Toasting marshmallows, telling ghost stories to scare one another, and catching fish was always fun.
One of the most memorable trips took place on the far side of Lake Lawtonka, at the base of Mt. Scott. He and his best friend, Gary, spent the day shooting shad with bow and arrows, cutting bank poles, and getting ready to go when their dads got home from work.
Although there was no "monster" in Lake Lawtonka, one night there was a "sneak attack" by a rather large catfish tail. Checking the bank poles was not nearly as fun or "free" after that point, but it was the inspiration for this story.
Bill Wallace has won nineteen children's state awards and been awarded the Arrell Gibson Lifetime Achievement Award for Children's Literature from the Oklahoma Center for the Book.

I love teaching with Bill Wallace. He has funny books about animals as well as very exciting adventure about boys. The boys in class never put it down because they're bored! Ferrets in the Bedroom, Lizards in the Frig seems like a book that might be far fetched but instead it's a story about a girl and her dad, an animal biologist. It's funny, smart, and teaches a lot about animals. This is a keeper!

This book is a great book for kids that love animals and like funny things. I thought that this book was a great book because of the funny animal parts that happen, the sad parts in the book that happen, and the things in the book that could be related to real life.

Ferret in the Bedroom, Lizards in the Fridge by Bill Wallace is a pretty good book about a girl named Elizabeth Robins, whose nickname is Lizard. Liz¿s dad studies animals, so she has a bunch of animals living in her house. She doesn¿t think it¿s safe to have friends over. Then she gets elected as one of the top three candidates for the class president. She needs to invite friends over to work on a campaign. What will she do? Will she regret inviting them later? This story has friendship, truth and trust. It also has some funny parts in it, like when they make posters for the campaign. Girls would probably like this book better than boys.

I still have a worn copy of this at home. It's a great story. I am 22 now, and have four of my own ferrets, along with a lizard, dog, and a cat. Well, everything is adorable about this story. The ferret's antics all sound like what happens in my house...but...the main character, Liz, has a father who says something to the effect, 'It's a shame people keep these wild critters as pets. They are sweet, but really should be in their natural habitat.' Well, folks, ferrets are domestic. There are other species that are wild, but mustela furo is a domesticated animal. That's my only complaint and I mention it because it is a widespread misunderstanding and causes legal problems for MANY ferret owners!
