    I read the book The Fabled 5th Graders of AESOP Elementary and I think it is a good book for 5th graders and it is a very funny book. It is a very good book for 5th graders because it talks about a 5th grade class that gets into mischief. It is a very funny book because they wrote their own fables and they made them the funniest I have ever heard. It was also funny because they were taught by the only teacher that wanted to teach them. I think it is a great book for any 5th graders who like humor. I would give this book 5 stars.

    1. I am reading this book now and I am a fifth grader. I would have never guessed that yawa og niar niar is the opposite of rain rain go away. I live in California we have a drought. I wish for yawa og niar niar.

    I just read the book The Fabled Fifth Graders of Aesop Elementary School. I thought of this book as a good book for other fifth graders to read. This book continued to amuse me with all of the fables that Mr. Jupiter’s class held within them. One of my favorite fables was when the fifth graders graduated from Aesop Elementary School. This part was a good part to me because I thought it was a good time for the fifth graders. Another good thing that happened in this book was when the fifth grade class had a really cheery sub, but the class thought she was really annoying to them. The sub was very happy about this and always wanted to play games. They did not like this, and continued to almost beg for Mr. Jupiter to return to the class. Another reason I liked this book was when Mrs. Bozzetto’s cat got lost in the school, during the fire drill, and Emberly went on a case to find the missing cat. He eventually found him, and the whole class gave him a big congratulations for helping the teacher out. That was a very enjoyable part for me to read. That is why I enjoyed reading The Fabled Fifth Graders Of Aesop Elementary School. I would highly recommend this book for other people to read. This book was very good!

    The Fabled Fifth Graders of Aesop Elementry School

    I read a book called the Fabled Fifth Graders of Aesop Elementry School. I think that the book was amazing! I liked this book because the book was really funny. The Fabled Fifth Graders of Aesop Elementry School was funny because one time Mr. Jupiter ordered guinea pigs and all the kids thought that it was just an ordinary guinea pig. But when they started to play music the guinea pigs chimed in. then all of the kids liked the guinea pigs. Once the fifth graders also where writing some fables. One of the fables was called “The Llama and the cookie.”The llama and the cookie is when two llamas go to a Chinese restaurant. One of the llamas ate a fortune cookie whole without even taking the fortune out and he died. Once the art teacher’s cat got lost during the fire drill and all the kids had to find it and it was really fun reading it because somebody that loves mysteries solved it.

    I read the Fabled Fifth Graders of Aesop Elementary School. I liked the book. Crazy fifth graders are going to graduate fifth grade and go to sixth grade soon. Some teachers are happy the fifth graders were going to sixth grade. But the students weren’t happy. They loved Mr. Jupiter! They were going to miss him a lot .But Mr. Jupiter was going to be happy because he was going to go on a adventure with another teacher he kind of likes. That’s why I liked this book.

    I read The Fabled Fifth Graders of Aesop Elementary by Candace Fleming. I liked this book a lot and it was really funny. I thought this book was awesome!!! I thought this book was funny because it had a lot of silly characters. It also had a bunch of kids who were doing weird things. For example I thought it was funny when Ham took one of Mr. Jupiter’s scrolls and started goofing around with it. He learned a magic spell that summoned a huge rain cloud that started to pour whenever Ham told it to. This book was one of the best books I’ve ever read because it was very interesting. The characters are funny and they goofed around a lot. Ham got in a lot of trouble because he couldn’t control the cloud and it started to rain everywhere. Mr. Jupiter was a little upset with Ham because everything in the classroom got all wet. I think Ham really learned his lesson about playing with things he doesn’t know too much about. Then one day when Mr. Jupiter was absent they had a really crazy substitute. She drove the kids crazy. For once the kids were getting tired of the teacher instead of the other way around. If this book were a movie I think it would be awesome!!! I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a funny, crazy book.

    I read The Fabled Fifth Graders of Aesop Elementary School and I thought it was a great book. My favorite part of this book was when the fifth grade teacher Mr. Jupiter got 2 dancing hamsters. It was a very funny book. The funniest part was when the fifth graders were telling there weird stories. During the end of the story Mr. Jupiter got to go on an adventure. I wonder if he had fun or found some interesting things to go with his weird collection. I think it would be wonderful if the author made another book about the same students in middle school.

    I am reading the book The Fabled Fifth Graders of Aesop Elementary, I like this book so far because, it is a very funny book, also it kind of teaches a good lesson after every chapter. This book is extremely funny because, the characters are unusual and weird. Also they don’t act like normal fifth graders, they act kind of like first graders, bad first graders. I also think the stuff they come up with really funny stuff. I really think the morals at the end of each chapter are really funny, and they have real potenal. I also like how they connect each chapter to the moral. The morals are true value and can be used in life challenges .This book is weird and strange but also really good. I think people that love to read, this is the book for you!

  10. I read the book THE FABLED 5TH GRADERS. I thought it was a really good book because. It was the best book I ever read I loved it. One part of it was about a girl who wins the spelling bee.
    This book was really good because. I like how all the kids try to be funny. When Mr. Jupiter’s class arrives the students and he are wearing matching toucan hats. The class had a singing hamster this is just such a good book. The class also loved there class they also thought they had the best teacher in the world. He let his class do everything. One day when they got to class Mr. Jupiter wasn’t there
    They all got worried. They ended up with the worst teacher in the whole world. She came in and said, “Hello my little darlings” How are you doing. That is why I love this book so much it is the best book in the hole entire world. I really recommend this book to everybody.

    The RICBA book I read is The Fabled Fifth Graders of Aesop Elementary School by Candace Fleming. I thought the book was very original. When the fifth graders arrive at Aesop Elementary they are all wearing the same pecan headdress. Then they danced down the hallway to the classroom. The moral to that chapter: birds of a feather flock together. All the teachers that already had the kids are nervous and careful for Mr. Jupiter.

  12. A RICBA book I read was The Fabled Fifth Graders of Eosop Elementary School by Candace Fleming. What I think about this book is that it is a funny book with very funny but odd characters. I read this book because I read the first one, which is The Fabled fourth grader of Eosop Elementary. The fourth graders one is pretty much the same thing but different fable after each chapter. These two books don’t really have a problem and a solution in them. The two books have a fable after each paragraph and they teach you a lesson. Mr. Jupiter taught the fourth grade class and Mr. Jupiter taught them for fifth grade. Mr. Jupiter taught them because all of the other fifth grade teachers didn’t want teach this group of kids because how gross and bad they were. Mr. Jupiter offered to teach this class because he likes them for who they are and he likes their jokes and pranks. I read this book because it s a RICBA book and I loved the first one and thought it was so funny and it was a long book but not too long.

  13. I read and liked the book the fabled fifth graders of Aesop elementary by Candace Fleming. It was a really good book I would recommend this book to people who like funny books and chapter books.It was about these fifths graders who the teachers who didn’t like them .because the fifth graders were trouble makers and didn’t always tell the truth. Sometimes make up stories a bout thing they thought were true. At the beginning of the book the fifth graders learned that very thing you here isn’t always true. Near the end a girl won the spelling b every one kept barging saying they were the best and they ended up losing.

    I just read The Fabled Fifth Graders of Aesop Elementary School by Candce Fleming. I loved the book and I thought that it is a really great book for the whole family because it was really funny and there is also a fourth grade book so there is two books to read to the whole family. I also think that there might be a sixth grade book so about that I am really excited about the sixth book and I’m sure that I will probably read them all over again to read the next book I would definitely recommend The Fabled Fifth Graders of Aesop Elementary School. It was a really funny book about a teacher named Mr. Jupiter and since he was a teacher of course he had some students. All of Mr. Jupiter’s students were all very crazy. So no other teachers wanted the students that Mr. Jupiter had because again they were all really insane. Mr. Jupiter was the only teacher who would take the students. So to all of the students he was the best teacher anyone or all the kids could have but still no other teachers wanted to be with or even go anywhere near him at all. Then all of the kids felt really bad for him and kept on trying to cheer him up but still just no luck. None of the kids wanted him to be their fifth grade teacher but then after a while they began to realize that he is the best teacher that anyone could ever have beacause he is really awesome. I really liked the book because it was really funny and it’s a great book for the whole family. I would really recommend this book because it’s a really good book and a really funny book because of all of the events that happen inside of the book. Plus it’s a really great book for the whole family to enjoy reading all together.

  16. I read The fabled fifth graders of Aesop elementary by Candace Fleming. I thought it was really funny because all of the students were hilarious
    This book is in 2 books, The fabled fourth graders and this one. I liked the part where the kids wrote the fables. They have the same awesome teacher from last year Mr. Jupiter And also they got to roast hot dogs in science! I can’t give away the whole entire book so read it to find out. This is the book I’m recommending for R.E.C.B.A.

  17. The RICBA book I read was The Fabled Fifth Graders of Aesop Elementary School and I thought it was funny I thought it was funny because They did a news broadcast where they kept on going back and forth with a lot of jokes and insults. Another thing I thought was funny was that their names described their personalities like Mr. Jupiter’s name is weird just like him. Also when Ham forgot his lunch token and went to go get it he read out loud a line that made a mini thunder storm which later threw their tests around and he had to say it backwards which turned out to be rain, rain go away. When the fire alarm went off during art the cat they were painting ran away in the school but they found it. Those were all reasons why I thought it was funny.

  18. The RICBA book I read was The Fables of Aesop
    Elementary School it was very funny The Fables of Aesop Elementary School was really cool and funny because Mr. Jupiter was funny which made his student’s even funnier. I’d recommend this book to anybody that likes funny books. This book is also good because the class got these guinea pigs which sang along with the class. I also thought the book was good because it taught you a lesson by telling you don’t touch something if someone tells you not to. Another lesson it was that don’t tell rumors if you didn’t hear the whole story. What I also thought about the book was that at the beginning of the year all the other teachers were scared of the fifth graders because the fifth graders were wild last year.

  19. I loved The Fabled Fifth graders of Aesop Elementary School. I love it, because it is creative, and full of action. Like the part when a storm rained down on the classroom and test papers flew everywhere. I would recommend this book to people in the fifth grade level. I would recommend it to them, because the setting is in a typical fifth grade class, with kids just like them. Connor grade6 Orchard Farms

    A RICBA book I read at School was The Fabled Fifth Graders of Aesop Elementary I liked it a lot! I liked how all of the fifth graders in Mr. Jupiter’s class were really funny like Ashley A, B, and Z. All of the kids in the class would randomly put together a big party and have it happen right in school. The book told a lot about what was happening in the story and how they did everything very perfectly. I felt like I was inside the story and that everything in the story was happening right when I was reading it. This book was very good and I recommend it to other people who like funny stories. This was the fourth best book I’ve ever read in school.

  21. I read The Fable of Aesop Elementary school. My teacher read this to my class and I. I think this is a good book because when my teacher was reading it I felt like I was in the story. This book has very good detail and really helps the reader visualize what is happening when it is.
    This book is about Amisha and she loves to spell things in the class room, In school wide and everywhere else. Amisha’s teacher Mr.Jupiter liked to quiz her. Then when it was time for the spelling bee everyone got out accept for Amisha and her apoint Mikey.Mikey was a very good speller but Amisha won. After the spelling bee Amisha felt very proud and hoped that she would be in another spelling bee soon. When Amisha is home on free time she loves to get her spelling words for that week in school and she would quiz herself. Amisha is one of the best spellers in her class and in the fifth grade. When Amisha gets older I think she should be a professional speller and be in every spelling bee in the world. Paige P

  24. The RICBA book I read was The Fabled Fifth Graders of Aesop Elementary School and I thought it was very funny. The one I liked was when Calvin turned himself in to a human pretzel. Another on e I liked was when Ham got the power to control rain. The last one I liked was Mr. Jupiter got caught in the bracelet of the librarian and the boys thought they were wrestling and the girls thought they were getting married. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes funny fables.
