Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One day, Mr. Keene called all the students and teachers together and said, "This is a fine, fine school! From now on, let's have school on Saturdays too." And then there was more.

School all weekend. School on the holidays. School in the SUMMER! What was next... SCHOOL AT NIGHT?

Synopsis:

When Principal Keene says his school is so fine they should have class on Saturdays, it's up to Tillie to show her well-intentioned principal that it's not fine to be at school all the time.
