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?

So it's up to Tillie to show her well-intentioned principal, Mr. Keene, that even though his fine, fine school is a wonderful place, it's not fine, fine to be there all the time. Newbery Medal-winning author Sharon Creech and celebrated New Yorker cartoonist Harry Bliss team up in this charming and hilarious book about what happens when the love of learning goes a bit too far.

Synopsis:

Mr. Keene is a principal who loves his school. And he’ s lucky enough to have students who love school, too. But is there such a thing as too much school?

It’ s up to Tillie and her classmates to show their well-intentioned principal that even though his fine, fine school is a wonderful place, it’ s important to have time for fun too. Newbery Medal– winning author Sharon Creech and celebrated New Yorker cartoonist Harr Bliss team up in this charming and hilarious book about what happens when a principal and his students take their love of learning a bit too far.
