Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"When Milton Worthy learns his classroom's pet ferret is the evil mastermind behind a dastardly plot for world domination, it's more than just about any kid could handle. But then not every kid is the son of a member of the super-secret, super-awesome Society of Substitutes! Now it's up to Milton and his substitute teacher mom to save Beacher Elementary School before time runs out." -- Page [4] of cover.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2021 March #2
    In a tale liberally endowed with silly twists and astounding revelations (plus a checklist at each chapter's end so that newer or reluctant readers can track their progress), second-grader Milton Worthy is stunned to discover that his mom is actually a crime-fighting secret agent, and electrified to learn that she's been called in to his school because the class ferret he had inadvertently allowed to escape its cage is actually an evil supervillain making a bid, with the other class pets, to teleport the school (and the rest of the world) to, wait for it, Evil Pet Island. Nor is Milton just a passive observer, for when the nefarious ferret superglues his mom to a chair, he realizes it's up to him to mount a rescue operation. Interspersed with scenes of frazzled students, leering pets, and action highlights on every page of well-leaded narrative, the caper races along to a final, thrilling surprise—and a set of related extension activities. Milton's Beacher Elementary isn't Wayside School, but it's definitely in the same district. Grades 2-4. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
