Roscoe Riley Rules #4: Never Swim in Applesauce by Katherine Applegate, illustrated by Brian Biggs
What has Roscoe done now to land him in time-out?
Well, it all began when his teacher told his class they were going on a field trip to an apple farm! He was so excited, and managed to borrow his sister's crazy eight ball, which he often consulted to make sure the trip would be fun.
And it was, until the class went on a tour of how applesauce is made...
You'll have to read it to find out what happens...but I'll just say it is very messy!
What I Thought:
I love this series! I think Roscoe is just adorable and his books are simply delightful. They are funny, packed with action (well, first grade action!), a little innocent mischief and a good lesson.
A great book, a wonderful series, perfect for the beginning independent reader or a read aloud.
