Johanna Hurwitz (born October 9, 1937) is an American author of more than sixty children's books. After many years working as a librarian, Hurwitz wrote her first book, Busybody Nora, in 1976, one of the first in the chapter book genre for transitioning young readers from shorter stories to novels.

Arlene and Ilene love so many things about being identical twins. They like sharing a room, sharing friends, and wearing matching outfits.

A guinea pig in Central Park? PeeWee, once a boy's dear pet, has been secretly released into the wilds of Central Park. But instead of relishing his freedom, PeeWee is at first a stranger in a strange land-until he meets Lexi, a city-wise squirrel who gives his new stubby-tailed friend some tips as well as some confidence. Arlene and Ilene love so many things about being identical twins.

Talk about Teacher's Pet

This is truly an adorable story about an animal loving teacher. We should all be so lucky to have an educator such as Miss Fry. I have bought 4 copies of this book so far. I got one for my granddaughter, one for my great nephew, and another for a great niece. The very first thing out of each of their mouths after hearing this story for the first time was, "Again!" Now that my granddaughter has moved so far away I downloaded this to my Kindle so we could read it together over the phone.
I had to buy this one to replace one that my reading group lost. It is a good book, someone liked it well enough to take it so it must have been liked by them also.
Fun and educational

Easy read, fun story
Oh, to have a teacher like Miss Fry! She's warm and friendly, and really likes her students. She announces that there every Monday, a student can bring a pet from home-- but only for one day. Interestingly, and perhaps accidentally, two things happen:

1. Each kid forgets to bring his or her pet home, and
2. The pets tend to have some annoying habit (e.g., Winston's chicken wakes the neighbors, Patrick's tarantula hide's inside his mother's slippers, Roger's mom complains that his cricket, Moe, makes too much noise, and Alia has a homework-eating goat, and Amanda a destructive dachshund.)
3. On Tuesday, the kids' parents invariably call to ask Miss Fry if she wouldn't mind keeping the pets a little longer!

Miss Fry, for her part, is invariably welcoming: He's welcome to stay as long as he likes," she says to Roger's mom about the "chirruping" cricket. Soon, there's a whole pet store of animals in Miss Fry's room, and as they're added Noah-like, one by one, she feeds and looks after them. There are some nice little twists: The cricket does an amazing somersault; for example, and one girl's pet resembles an old, dirty sponge (probably because that's what it is!). Although Miss Fry is generous to a fault, author Dodds shows that she also has her limits. When summer finally comes and the kids take home their pets, Miss Fry looks appropriately weary, observing "no more pets." However, one is left behind. Roger has left Moe, and with him, a note:

"Dear Miss Fry,

Please take care of Moe.

He likes you best.


With her trademark "How lucky for me," (which manages not to sound facetious), Miss Fry takes Moe to her home, where he serenades her with chirrups from her garden. How lucky for Moe! This is a gentle, humorous and warm book that helps one appreciate animals and those teachers who become our favorites. The ink, watercolor, and colored pencil pictures are vibrant, expressive, and very engaging. "Teacher's Pets" is a superb book for reading in the classroom or at home, and I estimate the age range at toddler to early elementary school (perhaps through about grade 3).
This book is about a fourth grader named Cricket. Cricket is very smart and has always been the teacher's pet (favorite). She's always the student who gets to deliver a message to the office or be the lavatory captain. But this year, Cricket's teacher is different from the other ones. Her new teacher doesn't have any favorites. She is trying to make sure the teacher knows that she is very lucky to have her in her class. No matter what she tries, the teacher continues her policy of no favoritism.

Cricket is already feeling bad enough when a new student comes.

At first she thought it was okay, but since Zoe Mitchell is as

smart as her, it makes her angry. When the teacher says they

need Campbell's soup labels, Cricket thought she would be the

first one to get one for the class. Zoe told the teacher in

front of the whole class that she would have over a hundred

Campbell's labels by the end of the week. The next day Cricket

brought one label. On Friday, Zoe brought over 100 labels.

This made Cricket even madder. She felt Zoe was the teacher's

favorite. Does Cricket win the "contest" to be the teacher's pet? You will find out in this book.
