Summary
In this wildly charming and fantastically imaginative story by the New York Times bestselling author of Creepy Carrots and Creepy Pair of Underwear , a young animal expert knows just what to do when she spots her teacher in the wild.

Miranda is an animal expert. Or at least, she watches a lot of Nature Joe. Nature Joe is incredible. He rescues animals, returning them to their natural habitat.

Mrs. Birdley is a teacher. The natural habitat of a teacher is a classroom.

So when Mrs. Birdley escapes school and ends up wild, loose, and confused at the local grocery store, Miranda knows just what to do: she must use her brain, her guts, and her extensive knowledge of Nature Joe to rescue Mrs. Birdley--at any cost!

This delightfully over-the-top picture book by newcomer Emma Reynolds explores the weirdness of seeing a teacher outside of school and will have young readers laughing out loud every time they read.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Self-proclaimed animal expert Miranda Montgomery has honed her skills by watching the Nature Joe Animal Show every day. When she sees her teacher in the grocery store, Miranda is certain that Mrs. Birdley would be much happier in her natural habitat, the classroom. Miranda springs into action, constructing a pit trap, concocting a blueberry yogurt lure, and finally successfully capturing Mrs. Birdley inside a garbage can, which she then rolls down the street and into the school. Miranda is heartened by her success, until she spies the school principal looking at lawn mowers in the home improvement store. Aaron Reynolds' tongue-in-cheek text cleverly exploits the trope that educators have no life beyond the school. Emma Reynolds' digital illustrations highlight jungle green predominately, accented with neon purples, oranges, and yellows. Her cartoon-style characters feature prominent hair, button eyes, and expressive faces. Compositions are attractively varied, ranging from full-bleed spreads to single-page art and smaller, paneled illustrations. The text's use of terminology borrowed from nature videos (becoming "aggressive" and "natural habitat") adds to the fun."
