Illustrated by Andrea Wesson
Audience: Intermediate (4th-6th grade)
Category: Adventure, Fantasy, Humor
|Evangeline Mudd's parents are...well,
they're not exactly what you'd call
normal. For one thing, they're
primatologists. (That means they study
apes for a living.) For another thing,
Dr. and Dr. Mudd think that Evangeline
should be raised just like a golden-
haired ape. Yikes!
By the time she was five, Evangeline
could eat a peanut butter and jelly
sandwich with her feet and
color with her hands -- both at once!
(Do not try this at home.)
By the time she was six, she could
brachiate. (That means she could move
from tree to tree by swinging on
vines -- another thing you should not
try at home.)
Wonder what will happen when she's
seven? Whatever it is, you can bet that
it's something you shouldn't try at
