Candace Fleming's own website offers this brief synopsis: 'The Fabled Fourth Graders of Aesop Elementary School' is a collection of contemporary fables about a hilariously rambunctious group of kids, fearlessly led by a globetrotting, Mayan-ceremonial-robe-wearing teacher named Mr. Jupiter. That description is accurate. These are good school stories, moving a little towards To Sir, With Love and adding a moral to each chapter in case we did not get a message. This is a quick and maybe too easy read. However, it will help some readers get into reading, and no one can argue against that! This is simple reading, but I found myself laughing out loud.
