From the whimsical world of Steig!
When Quantz stops to pet a big red dog, what does he get for his efforts? FLEAS! And those fleas are itchy! So he trades them for a talking uncle, but that uncle just talks too much, so Quantz is happy to give him up for a huge wheel of limburger cheese. But that cheese is too heavy, so he trades it for a beat up banjo . . . then an auburn wig . . . a tiny pet rabbit . . . a dried up bone . . . and finally a big red dog—who becomes a fast friend.
This wonderfully Steigish tall tale concludes with a flea circus you’ll never forget! With whimsical, retro illustrations and a hilarious text, Fleasis a book children will be itching to hear again and again!

Awesome read aloud, great to use for sequencing because of the trading it would require the student to critically think about all the different trades and how they occurred. Students would like the book because it is very much like a journey that he is going on. Read full review
