In this sixth installment, Destiny misunderstands what Jake, their custodian said. She heard, "Get rid of cats," and thought he meant Mrs. KATZ, her beloved teacher had to go. Meanwhile, Bus 13 (is that an omen or what?) dies a painful death, and Yolanda decides if they can turn the bus into a poetry place, then Mrs. Katz will be able to stay (and not make a mess after school). Jake pulls several seats from the old bus and puts in a table and some chairs, and it's a big surprise for Mrs. Katz -- and the rest of the Zigzag Kids! Early readers will love this reader-friendly little chapter book! ( )

Destiny overheard something she wasn’t supposed to. Jake the Sweeper said that Ms Katz, a favorite and most beloved teacher of the children at ZigZag School, had to go (as in, leave the school for good) because she made too much of a mess. Desperate to save Ms Katz, Destiny gathers a diverse crew of friends — all who love Ms Katz fiercely — in an effort to save her job! Working hard and thinking creatively, the children of ZigZag School, together, find a way to showcase Ms. Katz and show how important she is to the children. But — can they save her job??

Super Surprise by Patricia Reilly Griff is a fun children’s book with age-appropriate intrigue, mystery, and problem-solving. Lively dialogue and illustrations pull the young reader deeply into the story. The clarity and detail of the pictures help the kids enjoy the chance to see new friends they’ve made and clearly imagine the events at the ZigZag Afternoon Center.

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. ( )
