Description

When Mrs. Norrell invites her students to bring something they love from home for show and tell, David Dixon sneaks in his new dachshund puppy, Bandit. But during the presentation, the puppy escapes. By the time David rushes into the hallway, his mischievous puppy has vanished. Mrs. Norrell launches a formal search, but David is an “act first, worry about the consequences later” kind of kid. Without stopping to think or tell anyone what he’s doing, David races off into the school building by himself to find Bandit. As he runs away from Mrs. Norrell’s classroom, David turns into a dachshund!

At first, he’s delighted by the transformation and even tracks down Bandit. He and Bandit are able to do whatever they want as dogs-eat the day’s lunch, jump in the suds-filled sink, and run around on the playground. But he doesn’t want to be a dog forever!

In this new chapter book series, Mrs. Norrell’s second-grade classroom has magic that allows kids to transform into animals to learn important life lessons. Each book will follow a different kid and their animal transformation, and will include fun natural science facts about the featured animal in the back matter.
