Misadventures of the Family Fletcher, by Dana Alison Levy

Misadventures of Family FletcherSummary:  This seriously funny, modern family adventure features two dads, four adopted boys, and a variety of pets.  Their year will be filled with new schools, old friends, a grouchy neighbor, hungry skunks, leaking ice rinks, school plays, wet cats, and scary tales told in the dark! There’s Sam, age twelve, who’s mostly interested in soccer, food, and his phone; Jax, age ten, who’s psyched for fourth grade and thinks the new neighbor stinks, and not just because of the skunk; Eli, age ten (but younger than Jax), who’s thrilled to be starting this year at the Pinnacle School, where everyone’s the smart kid; and Frog (not his real name), age six, who wants everyone in kindergarten to save a seat for his invisible cheetah. Also Dad and Papa.  WARNING: This book contains cat barf, turtle pee, and some really annoying homework assignments.
