Dan Gutman’s My Weird School meets James Patterson’s House of Robots in the adventures of Geeger, a robot who loses his class pet, in the second story in a fun-to-read Aladdin QUIX chapter book series that’s perfect for emerging readers!
Geeger the Robot gets along great with the class pet, Fudge the Hamster—they both spend a lot of their time eating and share a love for mushy bananas. But when Fudge goes missing, some of the kids in Ms. Bork’s class think Geeger might be to blame! Could Geeger have eaten Fudge?! He certainly wouldn’t have done so on purpose. But Geeger has been known to eat things by accident before. With the help of his best friend Tillie, Geeger puts his strengths to use to find Fudge and clear his name!
