Publisher Description

Frederick Frederickson has a food-chain theory about life. There are lions, like the school bully. Gazelles, like the bullied kids. There are meerkats, and the fleas that live on the butts of meerkats. Frederick's a flea.

Fifth grade is off to a terrible start when Frederick is sent to a disciplinary camp for troublesome boys. His fellow troop mates—Nosebleed, Specs, The Professor, and little-yet-lethal Ant Bite—are terrifying. But in between trust-building exercises and midnight escape attempts, a tenuous friendship grows between them. Which is lucky, because a Category 5 hurricane is coming and everyone will have to work together—lions and fleas alike—to survive!

Kate Beasley outdoes herself in this hilarious, whip-smart tale of brotherhood, survival, and what it really means to be a friend.

“I didn't quite know what to expect going into this book but I am so glad I read it. Although I would disagree with the theory of lions and meerkats, the core of this theory is that no matter our "social standing," you can always choose to be a kind person and a good friend. Found in L4M OT Volume 29.”
“I rated this one lower because I just couldn't get through it. My third grade son finished it way before me, but I was so unmotivated to keep reading it. I guess it turned out okay in the end, but I just didn't really care for it.”
