Description

Stuey Lewis has conquered second grade, but third grade's no piece of cake, either. Can he figure out how to transport his whole class to outer space, navigate a first airplane trip disaster, celebrate the best Mother’s Day ever, and find a cool enough pet for the class’s pet show? With a little help from  his best friend, Will, and his awesome teacher, Ginger, of course he can!
