Find out about the most infamous fourth grade class with Kidzworlds book review of Fabled Fourth Graders of Aesop Elementary by Candace Fleming.

Author: Candace Flemming

What do you do with the worst behaved fourth grade class a school has ever seen? You bring in an eccentric teacher like Mr. Jupiter to teach them important life lessons like the early bird gets the worm. Read on for Kidzworld's review of Fabled Fourth Graders.

Today's Lesson

Fabled Fourth Graders follows the bratty fourth grade class at Aesop Elementary School for the whole year. Each chapter is ended with one of Aseop's Fables classic morals like when Calvin Tallywong wishes he were back in kindergarten and he is suddenly sent to the kindergarten class. He is forced to wear a name tag, participate in classroom circle, and eat snacks with his nose-picking classmates. The moral of that chapter? Be careful what you wish for - it might come true! In total there are 23 chapters, each with a great moral at the end. And since the stories are told in such a clever way, you don't even notice that you're learning something worthwhile.

Clever Characters

Each character in Fabled Fourth Graders has a unique name that perfectly describes them. The strict cafeteria lady is Mrs. Bunz, the drama teacher is Mrs. Playright and the class's out-of-this-world teacher is Mr. Jupiter! Ashley Zamboni's name is a constant form of entertainment for his classmates - that is until the school bully decides to make an example of him. You almost have to read the book twice to catch all the witty names that author, Candace Fleming, has come up with.


The Bottom Line

The Fabled Fourth Graders of Aesop Elementary School is a quick, fun read that's perfect for that first back-to-school book report! Each chapter tells its own story, but they all tie together as well as you follow the rambunctious kids through their year in fourth grade. Whether you're heading into fourth grade yourself or you're well past those days of multiplication and school plays, Fabled Fourth Graders is sure to please!

There is no point in arguing this unanswerable question, but I will go through the pros and cons of both of them: first, we have dabs. The dab started it's plot for world domination when it rose to the US in 2015. Unmistakably, the dab was popular long before the fidget spinners rose. But let's get to the point, which is better? Well, the dab, being a world-dominating, bottle-Flipping dance move, it does not really have much of an important purpose, does it? But let's move over to the fidgets, they have a very, very important purpose: to keep people who have disorders like autism, stay calm, some of you reading this undoubtedly have a fidget spinner in hand, and now you're dabbing. Great. Debate it in the comments. :thumbsup or  :thumbsdown ??? You're right, my fidget spinner is right near me. I have ADHD though, so it's helpful. And dabbing is A LEGACY, OKAY YES.
