Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

I'll bet every great thinker and leader we've got Could see all kinds of things other people could not!

Billy is a small boy with a big imagination.

Mr. Booth is a serious teacher with a strict lesson plan.

When the irresistible force of Billy's unrestrained creativity meets the immovable object of Mr. Booth's fi xed worldview, one thing is obvious: someone is going to learn a lot this school year!

The irrepressible Billy, star of the New York Times bestselling When I Grow Up, returns in an uproarious back-to-school tale from the uniquely inspired "Weird Al" Yankovic. Dazzling wordplay and sparkling rhyme combine in this appreciation of the rewards of unabashed originality and the special joy of viewing the world gently askew.

Review:

"Yankovic and Hargis balance earnestness with goofiness in a story that pits the mundane against the incredible. On the first day of class, Billy arrives with more stories than a skyscraper, and his glowering new teacher's objections only egg him on. As his yarns grow increasingly preposterous ('I just went on vacation with my dad and mom/ To an island somewhere between Norway and Guam/ Where the blueberry muffins grow right on the trees,/ And you flip inside out every time that you sneeze'), Mr. Booth attempts to restore order, and Billy responds with a defense of unconventional thinkers (Marie Curie, Martin Luther King Jr., and Gandhi make cameos) like himself. Ages 4 — 8. (July)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

"Weird Al" Yankovic's new tale of Billy, the irrepressible star of the New York Times bestselling When I Grow Up, is an uproarious back-to-school delight. Dazzling wordplay and sparkling rhyme combine in a unique appreciation of the rewards of unabashed originality and the special joy of viewing the world gently askew.

About the Author

Known for more than thirty years as America's premier satirist of popular music and culture, "Weird Al" Yankovic has had almost as many careers as Billy can dream of. Advised by his father to do whatever made him happy, he has accordingly been a comedian, singer/songwriter, music producer, actor, director, and writer—often all at the same time. Mr. Yankovic has won three Grammy Awards and has sold more comedy recordings than anyone else in history. He lives with his family in Southern California.

Wes Hargis wanted to be a professional dirt miner when he grew up. Unstable market prices for dirt led him to pursue his second love, and he has been an illustrator for more than fifteen years. Mr. Hargis lives with his family (and his dirt) in Arizona.
