About the Book

In a series of diary entries, a young boy documents his unfortunate mishaps on a school field trip to study plants and animals in the wild.

Book Synopsis

The hilarious sequel to My School Stinks! about a young boy at his school full of animals as they embark on an adventure-filled field trip! Perfect for fans of Ryan T. Higgins's We Don't Eat Our Classmates, Elise Parsley's If You Ever Want to Bring an Alligator to School, Don't!, and the Magic Schoolbus adventures!

Dear Diary,

This morning, Mr. Grizzly announced we're taking a field trip. I thought we'd study stars at the planetarium or dinosaurs at the Natural History Museum. But we're going to study plants and animals. . . IN THE WILD!
I've read enough books to know nature is FULL of poisonous plants, creepy crawlies, and ferocious beasts! Besides, isn't our class wild enough?

Peek into Stuart's journal as he and his class brave the wilderness together, encountering gross bugs, terrifying animals, and--worst of all--NO BATHROOMS in this field trip adventure.

Praise for This Field Trip Stinks!

A relatable tale that will bolster the spirits of readers dreading their own field trips. --Kirkus reviews

Review Quotes

Praise for This Field Trip Stinks!

Scharnhorst's story--a follow-up to My School Stinks! (2021)--is effectively told through diary entries, which gives readers a sense of the narrator's gripes and inner monologue...Patton's illustrations include fine line detail, like Patricia the porcupine's individual quills, the snail's tiny tie, and the intricacies of the map. The narrator's expressions and body language--conveying everything from misery to pride--complement the text...A relatable tale that will bolster the spirits of readers dreading their own field trips. -- Kirkus Reviews
