This book takes place around Thanksgiving time and the teacher has placed a candy corn jar in the class where the students must guess the number of candy corns in the jar. The only catch is that students must read a page in a library book for each guess that they are allowed to make. Richard's problem is that he is not a very good reader. The winner will get to keep the candy corns in the jar. Richard can already taste those candy corns and before he knows it, he has eaten three fat juicy ones. What will he do and will Ms. Rooney find out? Students will need to read and find out the answers to these questions.
