At the request of Mrs. Pigeon, Gooney leads her class in a fable project. Each student makes up a fable based on an animal. To make things interesting, each student chooses an animal starting with the same first letter as their own name AND they need to have some sort of item or piece of clothing to help show off their choice. At times there are hilarious results. Malcolm uses red marker on his nose and a purple patch on his bottom to be a mandrill. Other students struggle with coming up with a fable and a moral or even thinking of an animal. What animal starts with "N" like Nicholas? I did love the animal parade and Tyrone's rap at the end, but the fables dragged a bit or had confusing morals at times.
