Find out about the most infamous fourth grade class with Kidzworld's 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!

    We women are strong but we are not interested in showing it. Instead, we waste our time on outfits and makeup. We shouldn't do this because the world is a dangerous place and we may make the wrong people look at us. We will be happy at first, but soon we will realize our mistake and grow more unfriendly. We should fight, fight till the end. There are a few things that we need to change and I think we should totally change them. We should show how brave we are. We should prove to the world that we can handle everything. We can fight. And if you don't want to, forget it because you're just a coward. Leav it to the people who want to make things better for you. I will  fight. I WILL NOT GIVE UP. I WILL DO WHATEVER I CAN. I may not be good at everything, but that doesn't mean that I can't fight.

    Duh. Nine year olds can be on this site, but Dear Dish It has frequently covered stories on some very graphic content. This site has always tried to service different age groups, but it's just impossible to do so.  What they really need to do is have a regular site for people who have aged out. Maybe a "Kidzworld Alumni" section.
