Description of this Book
Here is a follow-up to the ever-popular Lunch Money, with all the clever exuberance and child's-eye view that made the first book an IRA-CBC Children's Choice and reviewers say, This collection ... belongs in every classroom. Late to school? Tell the story of all the daring deeds that delayed you. Got a science project? Make your brother disappear. From dreaded oral reports and cranky bandleaders to broken friendships and frantic fund-raisers, these twenty-two poems offer humor, surprise, and a knowing slant on the changing moods of a school day. Paul Meisel illustrates the mischief and mayhem with lively energy.
