Description

"Have you ever needed to call 9-1-1, but you couldn't get to a phone? Have you ever needed to run, but your legs were like spaghetti? Have you ever needed to yell "help " but your throat was dry with fear?"

Laugh, cry, and panic with Mr. Magro's class as they listen to twelve exciting SOS tales

Throughout the year, twelve of Mr. Magro's students have written about their biggest emergencies and tucked them into the SOS file. Now it's time to read the stories out loud and try to guess whose contribution has not earned extra credit. Sit back and enjoy twelve humorously illustrated stories that are sure to keep your heart thumping.

"The SOS File" is a 2005 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
