Roscoe is right were we left him: in Time out. Against his older brother's advice, Roscoe decided to take Hamilton, his stuffed pig, to school. But then he was pig-napped. Roscoe is convinced Wyatt, the class bully did it. But how can he be sure?
Timeless humor, the truth about lovies (adults have them, too), and a couple of first graders make this fun to read anytime.
Our daughter laughed her way through this one, just as she did the first Roscoe Riley book. As a rising first grader with a love of stuffed animals, this one particularly struck home for her.
The story is so funny and moves so fast, it is hard to read just one chapter at a time. The author has pegged the age groups and their senses of humor. There aren't quite enough illustrations share in reading, but if Roscoe keeps breaking rules, I'm sure we'll catch up.
This is an illustrated chapter book series for elementary students.
This is largely a story meant to be read for fun. There are a couple of jokes kids will love (and parents remember trying out on siblings). That said, the author offers a strong message about classroom behavior, respecting choices, stealing, and owning up to your mistakes.

Buy! This is fun to read with first graders, and you'll likely read it at least one more time before they can read it themselves!
