've been called '
everyone's favorite red bird
', which is kind of funny I think. I'm not sure if that is really true but I do know that this book about my adventures at school will make you laugh.
was really bored, so one day my Mom decided it was time she sent me to school. '
Skool? What is Skool? Can I eat it?
' I had a bunch of questions about this place. When Mom told me school was a place you went to to learn things I wasn't overly impressed. But, being a good bird, I went along with the plan of going to school.
his picture book is all about what happened when I got to school. You'll see how I made some new friends, met Mrs. Peachtree (she wears strange, flowered, pink pants) and enlisted my classmates in helping me reach the Moon.
ou'll probably be most interested in how I tried to get to the Moon. The plan wasn't that successful but you'll probably get a laugh or two over what we tried to do. As you'll see, the plan was a failure, but the class did learn a new game – block basketball!
f you liked my first book,
Too Busy Marco
, I think you'll like this one too. Roz Chast is a cartoonist at the New Yorker magazine and she draws pretty good pictures. The ones of me are definitely very cool!
