Miss Fox's class is back! Now the students want to go to Roller Coaster Planet — and they are determined to earn the money for their trip. But each fund-raising attempt ends in disaster involving Percy P. Possum, the school's visiting author. As the class pays to repair the various mishaps they cause, soon their earnings are going down, not up! How will they ever get to Roller Coaster Planet? Young readers will enjoy Eileen Spinelli's appealing animals and Anne Kennedy's hilarious paintings — and learn a little math into the bargain!
"The latest book in the Miss Fox's Class series makes the most of a clever idea.... their energetic fund-raising is repeatedly undercut by unexpected expenses: after dousing the visiting author's suit, they must pay for cleaning; after breaking his glasses, they must pay for a new lens, etc. Teachers will appreciate the inclusion of real-life addition and subtraction, while kids will enjoy the buoyant humor as the story unfolds in well-chosen words and amusingly chaotic watercolor-and-ink illustrations." — Carolyn Phelan, Booklist
