About the Book:
specialist Mrs. Skorupski is back in her third
she's mixing it up with a Dewey Decimal treasure hunt!
On Monday, Mrs. Skorupski swooped over to greet my class at the library door.
"Hello Hugh Abernathy," she said. "So, you're line leader today?"
She pointed me toward the 'Knowledge Nest.' The light glinted off her rhinestone earrings. The left one spelled out 000. The right spelled 900.
My twin brother Louis nudged me. "Check out her shoes."
More rhinestone numbers! They were also pinned to her collar, holding her sweater closed, and decorating a ring on each hand. Ten numbers in all.
