Flash has brought an unusual pet to school for show-and-tell. It is not a mouse, lizard, or fish. Flash has brought his gorilla, Phil!
From School Library Journal:
Grade 1-3-Freddie "Flash" Fleetwood has found a cat-a very large cat. He takes it home to his parents, who explain that the animal is actually a gorilla. They agree to keep him as a pet if no one else claims him. The boy introduces Phil to his best friend, "Bullets" Birkenstock, and to his dog, Rolf. Finally, Flash takes Phil to school where, after some initial excitement, he becomes a member of their second grade class. Although the repetitive text will help readers become familiar with the vocabulary, some of it is awkward: "Nobody but Bullets Birkenstock called Freddie Fleetwood "Flash" Fleetwood. Nobody else called him that." Certain jokes are predictable (Rolf can say his name, "Rolf! Rolf!"), and there are some odd details thrown in, such as Mr. Fleetwood punishing his chickens by having them stand in a corner. Overall, though, it's all very amusing. Jill Pinkwater's animated, full-color illustrations add life to the story. A slightly offbeat beginner reader that will appeal to children who are tired of more straightforward, predictable books.
