In Life According to Og the Frog by Betty Birney, Og the Frog is a new class pet in Room 26 and he has to get used to all new kids, new routines, and a new neighbor. Thankfully everyone is friendly and he is starting to settle in, but then there is talk of sending him back to the pond. Og the Frog misses all of his pond friends, but life as the new class pet isn't so bad--- lots of crickets to snack on and new friends. Will the class decide to keep Og as their class pet or will they return him back to his old life at the pond? Softcover edition; recommended for ages 8 to 12 years.
