Tofu and T. Rex by Greg Leitich Smith

Smith, Greg Leitich. TOFU AND T. REX New York : Little, Brown, 2005 IL 5-8 ISBN 0316777226

They're back. Those wonderful kids from Peshtigo School who we first met in Ninjas, Piranhas and Galileo. This time we meet militant vegan Frederika Murchison-Kowalski who has just been kicked out of another school. It has to do with setting the football field on fire but I won't go into that just yet. So her short-lived stint in Texas ends and she is sent back to Chicago and Pestigo. Her cousin, Hans-Peter, is applying to the school and really wants to make a good impression on the selection committee. His life at home has become more complicated now that Freddie has moved in but he really hopes that she can help him get into the school. I won't tell you too much about what goes on but let me just say it involves a life-size papier-mache tyrannosaurus rex head, some bull frogs and some sushi kielbasa!
