Zoo Breath (Calvin Coconut)
Synopses & Reviews
What's stinkier than dog breath? Hawaii's Calvin Coconut is on a mission to find out!
Hawaii boy Calvin Coconut is a fourth-grade whiz kid: he has convinced his mom to let him adopt a dog. But Mom says Streak smells bad. Especially her breath. To Calvin, Streak’s stink is a good one, but he’s worried. If he doesn’t come up with a way to deal with Streak’s zoo breath soon, Mom might make him give his dog back to the shelter. So when his teacher assigns the class a discovery project, Calvin teams up with his pal Julio to find a way to fix Streak’s bad breath.
Zoo Breath is full of fun . . . and great stinks. Calvin Coconut’s discoveries will delight readers who have grown to love him, as well as those new to this series by Graham Salisbury, with charming illustrations by Jacqueline Rogers.
A humorous chapter book about a fourth-grade boy, full of the fun of growing up in Hawaii.
Calvin Coconut lives near the beach in Kailua, Hawaii, with his mom and his little sister. All his friends live there, too.
Mom says: You're the man of the house, Cal. Which means: Be responsible. Calvin tries, but fun--and trouble--follows him wherever he goes, even in the classroom, also known as Mr. Purdy's Fourth-Grade Boot Camp. And how can he be the man of the house after teenage Stella-from-Texas arrives to be the live-in babysitter and steps all over Calvin's turf?
Award-winning author Graham Salisbury welcomes younger readers to a lively new series with great illustrations by Jacqueline Rogers.
What's stinkier than a dog's breath? Hawaiian fourth-grader Calvin Coconut is on a mission to find out, in this latest entry of Salisbury's series. Illustrations.
