Fergus and Zeke and the Field Day Challenge

By Kate Messner
Illustrated by Heather Ross

Classroom pets Fergus and Zeke can’t wait for Field Day! But all the events are the wrong size — what can these two little mice do?

Fergus and Zeke love being the class pets in Miss Maxwell’s classroom. From science experiments to art projects, they do everything the students do. But on Field Day, none of the events are the right size for the small mice — the limbo is too easy, the high jump is too hard, and kickball is absolutely terrifying! So Fergus and Zeke create their own Field Day Challenge, with mouse-size tug-of-war, acorn throwing, and Hula-Hooping. After all the fun and exercise, it’s time to go back to the classroom — but Fergus and Zeke are locked out! Will they be able to use their new skills to get inside in time for ice pops? This new outdoor adventure in the endearing school-themed series from award-winning author Kate Messner, with lively pictures by Heather Ross, will have young readers jumping for joy.

  • The third book in the delightful chapter book series about two classroom mice
  • A fresh look at classroom traditions and special days through the eyes of the smallest members of the class — perfect for kids who are just learning about school rituals
  • Kids will be inspired to get outdoors and get moving with limbo, kickball, and sack races of their own
