Jimmy's boa constrictor wreaks havoc on the class trip to a farm.

Cute, fun kids book! This easy but different enough story should interest children because of the small tensions and the humorous antics of the characters. Recommended if you have a young one. ( )

A classroom field trip to the farm proves somewhat disastrous when Jimmy brings along his pet boa, which frightens the chickens and causes a trail of havoc as a result.

This is an entertaining read that unfolds its narrative in a clever way (it's a bit backwards and out of order as a young child recounts the story of the class field trip to her mother). The illustrations are busy and add to the story by showing extra details not included in the text. I read it with a number of kids of different ages, who all seemed to enjoy it. My only complaint was that the book seemed to launch into the dialogue without a bit of an introduction, which would have been nice. ( )

So funny! I smile every time I read it! ( )

Cute story, written as a conversation between a girl and her mother about the things that transpired during a school field trip. The colorful illustrations leave you laughing out loud, while the child's matter-of-fact descriptions give the story an authentic feel. Easily a favorite! ( )
