About the Book
Twitch, the school yard squirrel, has really gotten himself into a bind this time. While trying to escape from a hungry owl, he roused the principal’s dog and got chased into the school. Now he’s locked in for a dangerous and disastrous night. Can Green Eggs and Hamster, Sweetie the Library rat, and the other school pets save Twitch from the crazed dog, Cuddles?

In this uproariously funny chapter book, a group of small animals manages to turn an elementary school into a real zoo.
