Description

Jamie loves sharks. He reads about them. He talks about them. Sometimes he even pretends to be a shark. Too bad no one else wants to join his Shark Club. His peers and parents are quickly growing tired of his current obsession. When Jamie's teacher, Mr. Claxton, brings in a new class pet, Jamie is put in charge. But Jamie has an accident while feeding it, and everyone becomes upset with him. He needs to find a way to make things right. In the end, he comes up with a solution that pleases both his teacher and classmates, a solution that also gives Jamie an opportunity to share his newest obsession - lizards.

When his teacher announces the class is going to get a pet, Jamie is thrilled when it turns out to be a betta fish. He gets chosen to be the first student to care for the fish but ends up eating it instead. To make amends he comes up with an idea that will please both his teacher and his classmates.
