Make believe is fun! Pretend there is a mouse in your desk. Pretend Jenny
is part of a fourth grade pen pal project, writing letters to a second
grader pretending to be a mouse. This should be fun. But, while the
rest of the class receives adorable replies from their little pen pal partners,
the responses from Jenny’s partner, Sameera, are sloppy and illegible.
Read Dear Whiskers to find out how Jenny grows while she helps her new
friend learn valuable life skills. (Jean Bellavance firstname.lastname@example.org
