Squish, Super Amoeba by Jennifer L. Holm & Matthew Holm

For a single-celled organism, Squish the amoeba leads an awfully complicated existence. His two best friends-Pod, a bowtie-wearing amoeba nerd, and Peggy, a pathologically cheerful paramecium-are a constant thorn in his side; he just can’t seem to make it to school in time; and Lynwood the school bully wants to swallow him whole. When yet another bout of tardiness lands the whole group in detention, Squish is faced with a full-blown moral dilemma: in order to save Peggy from becoming Lynwood’s next between-meal snack, he has to let the big bully copy his next science test. Can even our precocious protozoan hero get himself out of this one?
