Never Talk to Ravens Illustrated Edition (An Xavion and Jamieson Time-Out Adventure Book 1) by M.L. Flurry

Xavion has big feet.  When his classmates tease him, he gets even by yelling a name at one of them.  He's heard by a teacher and loses his recess for a week.  Not fair...

BooksGoSocial and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can read it now.

While he's out sitting under the time-out tree, he's suddenly aware of a kangaroo there.  His name is Jamieson and he wants help to get back home.  They chat and then his teacher shows up, but she doesn't see the kangaroo.  Neither does he at the moment.

He gets so he's looking forward to his time under the tree.  Then it rains but Jamieson comes to see him in the room he's stuck in. The kangaroo has explained how he got to the states but now he wants to go home.  Australia is a long way away but Xavion has an idea.  Since Jamieson can jump high maybe he can win the top prize at the carnival:  Airfare to wherever you like.  Jamieson gets a ticket to Austalia and now Xavion has to find him a ride to the airport.

After all these adventures, Xavion doesn't listen to the boys that used to tease him and it's no fun anymore...
