Second-Grade Ape

Series: Hello Reader!
by Daniel Manus Pinkwater Illustrated by Jill Pinkwater

Fredie "Flash" Fleetwood finds a very large "cat" in some bushes. When Freddie takes the cat home, his parents point out to their son that this cat is actually a gorilla. They name him Phil, and Flash takes him to school with him. Madcap ape capers ensue, as you would expect.
