About the Book


Young readers will find a lot of familiar faces and things in David L.  Harrison's book of funny poems about school. Along the way they'll recognize the agony of tests, homework, cursive writing, and the mysteries of cafeteria food. Plus, there's Betsy Lewin's amusing illustrations that perfectly capture one silly trip through a day at school.


"A winner--to read aloud, pass around, and chortle over again."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review
