8 Class Pets + 1 Squirrel ÷ 1 Dog = CHAOS by Vivia Vande Velde (Holiday House, 2012) has a nearly impossible title to type up, but it is a truly fun early reader. In this book, a dog chases a squirrel into the school on a quiet night. The pets in the classrooms end up having an adventure as well!

This would be a great book for discussing the literary characteristic of “voice” since each chapter is narrated by one of the animals. Each animal has a distinct personality, and the end result is, as the title suggests, chaos! This is an amusing book sure to keep the early chapter book reader entertained.
