Description

Third grader Mortimer Henryson wants to bring a plant home from school for the summer, but he doesn't want just any plant. The only plant for Mortimer is Plantzilla. At first, his parents are happy to have Plantzilla come live with them. But when Mortimer finds Plantzilla's "growing preferences" include a diet of people food (mostly meat), they become a bit concerned. And when their beloved chihuahua suddenly goes missing, Mortimer's mother and father start to wonder whether the family can last an entire summer with Plantzilla.

Professional reviews

"As any student will tell, the honor of summer babysitting for prized classroom possessions is great. When Mortimer Henryson brings home the plant affectionately know as Plantzilla, vacation takes on a whole new twist for the family. Where is the family dog? What did happen to the pot roast? Through the exchange of letters between Mortimer, his parents, and his teacher, the personality of Plantzilla comes to light. Young listeners will chuckle as various narrators give rise to each character--Mortimer, who just could not understand that the plant would be different at home; Mother, who confides her concerns; the mysterious teacher; and Dad, who blusters through. Might this ever happen to your family? A.R. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine"
