Field Trip (Mr. Wolf’s Class #4) (Mr. Wolf's Class #4) (Paperback)
Mr. Wolf's students are going on a field trip! Everyone gets to sleep in log cabins, come up with fun camp names, and journey through the great woods. They'll be learning about the oldest and largest trees in the forest, exploring an abandoned ghost town, and toasting s'mores over a campfire. On top of all that, there are kids from a different school to meet!
Meanwhile, Aziza and Randy must learn how to work through an argument, and Abdi is worried that he can't keep up with Henry and his new friends.
There's much to do, see, and learn in the outdoors!

This debut sparkle's with well written characters, family dynamics gone awry and a deeply embedded Kansas location that is normally not written about. The only -too-real mother/daughter relationship is fraught with misunderstandings and hard won truths. How Mandelbaum handles a bone weary, obsessed and depressed woman on the verge of losing everything -- her home, her daughter, her animals and the entire sanctuary - is writing at its best. Surely, a writer to watch! - reveiw by Maureen
