Description

In Cole Calmenson's Teacher's Pets, Kate and Lucie are best friends who love, love, love DOGS. But just because they can't have dogs of their own doesn't mean they can't MAGICALLY turn into them!

The FURRY ADVENTURES continue in this CHARMING series when Kate and Lucie find a substitute teacher in their class. Mr. Z makes goofy jokes and has the class going hog wild as he teaches about animal communication. At the same time, mean Darleen makes fun of Kate and Lucie's friendship. Luckily, once Kate and Lucie slap HIGH FIVES and say the special words, they turn into dogs and find a way to save the day. They even make a new friend in the process!
