Mr. Rasch is a teacher at Stone Valley Middle school. He has a lot of "stuffed animal" monkeys. Or so the students thought. The monkeys were actually real!
Miles the monkey fell into Noah, a student's backpack when he [Miles] was sleeping. Noah was really surprised when Miles began to talk! Then, Alex, a really mean kid, took Miles. Alex was known for hurting animals. Noah chased Alex through the rain, but Alex got away.
Alex's little sister, Libby, heard about what Alex had done. She knew about Alex's reputation. She wanted to help get Miles back so she went to Stone Valley Middle school where she met Mr. Rasch and Noah. "I want in!" She said.
Libby invited Noah over to her house. When they arrived, Noah and Libby found Alex at the door with Miles. "Give him back!" said Noah. "No!" said Alex. Then, Libby ran and jumped at Alex. She grabbed Miles and held him away from Alex. "Yes!" She screamed. Libby and Noah slammed the door and ran back to Stone Valley
Noah and Libby ran with Miles all the way back to Stone Valley. Mr. Hirschman was very proud.
Miles thanked everyone for saving him. Then he went back to the shelf full of monkeys. Mr. Rasch explained that he had been smuggling monkeys from the rainforests as their homes had been destroyed. He had brought them to school so that they would have a home.
