    This book was merely okay. I wasn't amused with the story or the illustrations. The ending was a tad bit too random and I felt like it could have been much better. Needless to say, I won't be recommending this book anytime soon.*Taken from my book reviews blog: http://reviewsatmse.blogspot.com/2009...

    I remember enjoying sharing this story with my own kids. However, I shared this with a class of 3rd graders and it fell short of expectations. I started with the non-fiction connections with all the types of different fungus. We had a great conversation. Yet the story is not ideal for a read-aloud. The illustrations (and I love David Catrow for his off-beat exaggerated style) were too crowded for a read-aloud. The kids wondered why there were only three students in the pictures. There was a wooly mammoth that couldn't be explained and crayfish crawling out of something that might have been a sewer. Perhaps I didn't spend enough time anticipating these questions, but I doubt it.

    We love David Catrow's artwork, so whenever we see his inimitable style on the cover of a book, we just have to borrow it. This is a fun tale about a Spring break gone awry when a fungus science project and a very wet week of weather combine for disaster.The narrative is fun to read aloud and the illustrations are terrific, as always - we love the crazy fungi. We enjoyed reading this book together.

    This book was ok. I have to give it three stars because my niece and nephew did seem to enjoy different aspects of it. The pictures did capture their attention, and they did laugh in several places.The ending did kind of seem to drop off, though, and once the story moved out of the school building it seemed to lose its steam a bit. Probably not the best story we've read all year, but probably not the worst, either.

    Grades 3-5.Characteristics of fungus and what causes it to grow and spread. Also great for problem solving to allow students to try to figure out why and what conditions allow the fungus to grow and take over the school.

    Loved the illustrations!The story was so - so. Wish they had worked in more of a story line.. how the fungus came to be, as well as what fungus is...The kids were restless, but it was also gorgeous outside and hard for them to sit still.

    Nothing is more fun than reading aloud a book about fungus. With pretty, pretty, funny, pretty pictures. We identified unusual features for fungus such as eyes, mouths, little bobble ends, and hands holding brownies. A good way to geek out with a kid.Library copy.

    I thought it was very colorful and easy to read. There wasn't a moral to the story but it kept you reading to find out what would happen.

    Great fiction story to support a units about fungus, germs, or bacteria.

    My 5-year-old likes this book. I think it is aimed at a slightly older audience. The illustrations of the out-of-control fungus are fun to examine.

    A fungus experiment left in a jar during school break takes over the school. A little creepy, but not too scarey.
