Malcolm at Midnight by W.H. Beck

I read this book while preparing for some elementary school book talks.  I thought it was a cute and exciting read!  The story revolves around a rat named Malcolm who is adopted as the fifth grade class pet.  Only thing is no one realizes he’s a rat.  They all think he’s a cute little mouse.  He’s afraid if they find out the truth they won’t like him anymore.  So, he goes along with it.  He makes friends with one of the kids in his class and joins the other classroom pets in the Midnight Club.  Adventure and mystery ensues!  I’d recommend it for advanced 3rd grade readers through 6th grade.  Anyone who loves the Warriors or similar books will enjoy as will anyone else who likes animals and their crazy adventures.  Check out the official book trailer on YouTube – .
