The Misadventures of the Family Fletcher by Dana Alison Levy
Description (from Goodreads)
Meet the Fletchers. Their year will be filled with new schools, old friends, a grouchy neighbor, hungry skunks, leaking ice rinks, school plays, wet cats, and scary tales told in the dark!
There’s Sam, age twelve, who’s mostly interested in soccer, food, and his phone; Jax, age ten, who’s psyched for fourth grade and thinks the new neighbor stinks, and not just because of the skunk; Eli, age ten (but younger than Jax), who’s thrilled to be starting this year at the Pinnacle School, where everyone’s the smart kid; and Frog (not his real name), age six, who wants everyone in kindergarten to save a seat for his invisible cheetah. Also Dad and Papa.
WARNING: This book contains cat barf, turtle pee, and some really annoying homework assignments.
This book is hilarious. Dad and Papa head this non-traditional family but the love theme runs from cover to cover, along with kindness and patience. Frog wins all the awards in this book, he’s the kind of character you wish you could meet! The Misadventures of the Family Fletcher balances the quirks, noise and messiness of family in this memorable book. Definitely planning on reading Book 2.
