Back Cover Summary[]

Karen's class is studying wild animals. They are even going to see some at the zoo. Karen and her friends can't wait for their field trip.

But then the "mean green bug" hits Ms. Colman's class. Everyone is getting the flu! Karen hopes the school trip doesn't get canceled. But she doesn't want to give the animals the bug, too!

Summary[]

Karen's class has been learning about wild animals, and they are so excited when Ms. Colman announces a trip to the zoo. One day at school, Ricky begins feeling sick. Karen escorts him to the nurse, who sends him home. The next day, more students in the class are home sick. Even Ms. Colman gets the bug! Mrs. Hoffman fills in for her. Karen is excited to see Mrs. Hoffman, but she's feeling a little off herself. That night, she can barely finish her supper. She falls asleep early and wakes up the next morning with a high fever. She stays in bed all day and for most of the weekend. On Sunday night, Karen thinks that she is better, but she wakes up vomiting just a few hours after bedtime. Finally, on Tuesday, Karen is well enough to return to school. She is concerned, though, because there are still several students absent. On Friday, the day of the trip, Jannie is the only student who is still sick, so Ms. Colman decides that they can have their zoo trip after all. Karen is especially excited because Daddy is one of the chaperones! The class has fun at the zoo. When it is time to go home, Karen is very concerned because she does not know where Ms. Colman is. Karen thinks that her teacher is lost. To the class' great surprise, Ms. Colman had placed their wild animal sculptures on display in the zoo! Karen feels famous. on the way home, Karen asks Ms. Colman if she bought a souvenir. Ms. Colman shows Karen a book of postcards she bought for Jannie since Jannie missed the trip. Karen thinks that is a nice gesture even though she is not fond of Jannie.
