Review by Booklist Reviews

Poor Hazel (Hazy) Bloom desperately wants an iguana, but her chances of getting one are slipping away. Every time she tries to show her parents she can be responsible, something goes wrong. At school, the third-grade FUNdraiser Challenge is coming up, and Hazy's class needs a project. Thanks to one of her "tomorrow power" visions, Hazy suggests Pet Day, which the class loves (great!) and votes her into the position of project leader (not so great!). Now, she's in charge, but can't get organized without her best friend's help. Two days before the event, Hazy surprises her parents with her dedication to the school project, effectively demonstrating her ability to handle responsibility. Hamburg's second entry in the Tomorrow Power series, following Hazy Bloom and the Tomorrow Power (2017), offers young readers another hilarious story centered around family and friendship, with enough action and conflict to propel the plot. As with the first book, Harney's delightful pen-and-ink drawings are quirky and expressive, adding even more humor to the already funny text. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.

Review by Publisher Summary 5

After wacky third grader Hazy Bloom starts seeing visions of things that will happen one day in the future, she hopes her "tomorrow power" will help her get the pet she's always dreamed of in Hazy Bloom and the Pet Project, a hilarious chapter book by Jennifer Hamburg with illustrations by Jenn Harney. It's the annual Third Grade Leadership Challenge, where each third-grade class plans and hosts a fundraiser. Hazel "Hazy" Bloom, however, has other things on her mind—like proving to her parents she’s responsible enough to get a pet iguana. But when Hazy's "tomorrow power"—her ability to see visual clues about things that will happen one day in the future—mistakenly causes her to have a brilliant idea for a Pet Day fundraiser, her classmates put her in charge. Hazy's annoyed, until she realizes that if she helps the class win, her parents will finally see that she's responsible enough to get the iguana she's dreaming of. Soon, Hazy’s determined to make sure her team ends up on top—but it’s not so easy when her tomorrow visions keep throwing her plans into disarray!
