About This Book
Principal Walter Russ just wanted a simple proposal to trim the overgrown trees outside Geyser Creek Middle School. So how did he end up with a "wedding "(rather than a "weeding") proposal from designer Florence Waters?
And that's not all . . . Angelo, the new cafeteria chef from Italy, has taken up residence in Mr. N.'s classroom. A sixth-grader has moved into the weeping willow tree behind school. And all the girls in Geyser Creek are" boy"cotting the boys. As Chef Angelo would say: "Aye-yi-yi."
Will Geyser Creek Middle School's trees be saved? Only readers who follow this book from roots to crown will know for sure.
Wacky characters with pun-ny names like Wally Russ, Leif Blite, Barry Cuda, and Angel Fisch, leap out of this wild romp of a tale told through letters, faxes, phone message notes, and newspaper articles and ads.
Sisters Kate and Sarah Klise have created an uproarious third book in their award-winning "Regarding the . . ." series. Regarding the Trees has all the elements of everyone's favorite Klise books — including lots of surprises.
Includes tips on planting a tree and creating a family tree.
