Commenter: Emily, grade 18
When the principal of the Dry Creek Middle School contacts an eccentric fountain designer to install a new drinking fountain in their school, he is in for a surprise. Soon, fifth-graders are sending letters with suggestions of drinking fountains that spout chocolate milkshakes and ones in which students can swim, and the fountain designer is listening. As the story unfolds in a series of letters, memos, faxes, telegrams, and newspaper articles, it becomes apparent that there's more than a drinking fountain at stake, but the town's whole future. Is something fishy going on underneath the town's dry exterior? Find out in this silly story told with lots of pictures!

Commenter: Sara, grade 7
Regarding the Fountain has been a book I have loved since 2nd grade. I love how the story is told within letters, memos, postcards etc. Regarding the Fountain is a great read and if you liked this book as much as me, you'd be happy to know that this is only 1 of the many other books in the Regarding the... series. Happy Reading!!!!
