The Fabled Fourth Graders of Aesop Elementary School by Candace Fleming

Puns are the name of the game in this book by Candace Fleming. How punny? The Librarian is named Paige Turner. Each chapter shows a different version of an Aesop Fable, but updated and modernized, featuring middle school children. For me, a little of these stories went a long way, but they are amusing and cleverly written. It might be a good book for dramatizing, too, if anyone is looking for a book that could be adapted into skits or a play.

Find it at IndieBound.
