Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

No time for homework!

When Mrs. Byrd gives the class homework for the weekend, Gilbert just can't seem to find the time to do it. That's because it's almost Christmas, and Gilbert has other important things to do, like decorating Christmas cookies, ice skating with his friends, and helping his family find the perfect Christmas tree. What will Gilbert do when Monday morning comes?

The joyous holiday feeling around Gilbert's house comes alive in this funny, festive story that's perfect for anyone who's ever put off a chore.

About the Author

Diane de Groat says that the most difficult part of writing and illustrating this book was deciding what the correct title should be. I polled everyone I know, including teachers and students all over the country," she says. "And everyone disagreed on whether the jingle's words were 'you belong in a zoo' or 'you live in a zoo.' The opinions were split right down the middle, so I decided to use the words that I grew up singing."

Diane deGroat is the illustrator of over ninety children's books and the author-illustrator of the first two books about Gilbert, Trick or Treat, Smell My Feet and Roses Are Pink, Your Feet Really Stink, an IRA-CBC Children's Choice. Kirkus Reviews noted of the latter, "DeGroat pens a sympathetic took at the small hurts in life and the importance of second chances."

Ms. deGroat lives in Amherst, Massachusetts.
