Great Stone Face Booktalk #11

Malcom at Midnight
W. H. Beck

Imagine being a rat.  Not just any rat but one that became the class pet because the teacher thought the class was getting a mouse!  That is how Malcolm came to be the class pet under false pretenses…. but it wasn’t his fault.  When Malcolm discovers the Midnight Academy, a secret society of classroom pets at McKenna School, he also discovers he must keep his identity secret.  After all, who trusts a rat?  When strange events occur and the Academy’s leader, the iguana, disappears, Malcolm is determined to prove his innocence and prove even rats can be good guys.  Or can they?
