Can you imagine an octopus at school? What fun!
Who or what would you bring to school if you could? It could be a person, animal, imaginary creature, object, anything! Submit a comment to this blog by Tuesday, November 6, and let us know. One lucky teacher will be randomly selected to win this book.

I can’t wait to hear who or what would be coming to school with you! I think I’d bring a penguin, J.K. Rowling, and the world’s biggest pizza.
