It's the last day of school! Gilbert is excited about summer vacation, but first there's the class party, and Mrs. Byrd will give out the end-of-the-year awards. But will Gilbert even get one? Patty's the best speller. Philip's the best reader. What is Gilbert best at?
Humorous and reassuring, this story by Diane deGroat perfectly captures the bittersweet emotions of the last day of school. As Gilbert's class says good-bye to Mrs. Byrd, she reminds each of them how special they really are. And that she will miss them very, very much!

Diane deGroat has illustrated more than one hundred and twenty books for children. Last One in Is a Rotten Egg! is the tenth book in the award-winning Gilbert series that she has written as well as illustrated.From Booklist:
K-Gr. 2. In this ninth installment in the popular Gilbert and Friends series, opossum Gilbert and his classmates (assorted animals in children's clothing) look forward to graduating from first grade. Gilbert is anxious about the award ceremony--he wonders if he has a talent worthy of recognition. Even though Lewis, the class funny man, informs him that everyone gets an award, Gilbert isn't entirely convinced. Then Gilbert saves the day during a tense moment at the ceremony, which proves that he is, indeed, deserving of the award he eventually receives. Although this entry may not be as tension-filled as some of the other titles in the series, the bright, cheery watercolor illustrations, with their sizeable cast of lovable, expressive characters, will draw youngsters into Gilbert's comfortable small-town suburban environment. Gilbert's fans will look forward to more first-grade adventures with the opossum, or, perhaps, following a more mature Gilbert as he and his friends continue their escapades in second grade.
