Ants Don't Catch Flying Saucers by Trina Wiebe

new generation of readers can discover the beloved Abby and Tess Pet-Sitters series, with all new covers and inside illustrations. The fun-filled series features third-grader Abby, an aspiring veterinarian, whose family lives in a No Pets Allowed apartment building. In order to spend time with animals of all kinds, she goes into the pet-sitting business with her precocious little sister, Tess. The girls learn lots of new things about animals and find creative ways to solve problems. These short chapter books are perfect for kids who love animals and mystery. In Ants Don't Catch Flying Saucers, Abby has to deal with Dirk, the worst troublemaker in her class. Abby's stuck on his team for the Crazy Olympics, and on top of that, she has to pet-sit his ant farm over the weekend. Leave it to Dirk to have ants for pets! But Abby's little sister, Tess, thinks the ants are great, and worse, she actually gets along with Dirk. Abby wants nothing to do with either of them, until she nearly knocks over the ant farm and discovers that Tess was right about ants being really smart. Is it possible she's been too hard on Dirk and Tess? With the Crazy Olympics just a few days away, she still has a chance to make things right.
