Testing the Waters

Illustrated by Mike Moran

From critically acclaimed and prolific author Jane Yolen comes a colorful Level 1 Ready-to-Read story all about a fish with pre-test jitters!

There is a test at school today, and the fish’s tummy is whirling. Just like two currents, angry and swirling! To make matters worse, his regular teacher has been replaced by a mean-looking substitute teacher. What will happen with the test now?

Beginning readers can follow along as the fish overcomes his nerves!
