Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Speaking in front of the class isn't easy for small people like Melissa Herman. Especially when there's nothing very special to say about her house or her family or herself. But with the help of her older brother, Melissa borrows a bottle from her father's dental office to take to show and tell. The teacher is appalled, but the children are intrigued. David Catrow's hilariously zany illustrations reveal that there is nothing ordinary about Melissa Herman, or her house or her family. The bright artwork is laugh-aloud funny and will have children begging to hear the story again, or maybe invent their very own tale.

Synopsis:

When her older brother borrows a bottle of rotten teeth from their father's dental office for Melissa to take to show and tell, suffice it to say, the teacher is appalled--but the children in Melissa's class are terribly intrigued. Full color.

About the Author

Laura Simms really did bring a bottle of rotten teeth to school for show and tell. And she really did discover she could tell good stories. Now an internationally known storyteller, she has performed and taught in major festivals, symposiums, and conferences around the world. She started the first storytelling programs at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum, and the American Museum of Natural History. When she isn't touring the country telling stories, she lives in New York City.David Catrow is a nationally syndicated editorial cartoonist who draws great teeth and is the illustrator of many books for children, including the award-winning She's Wearing a Dead Bird on Her Head, which is one of his two New York Times Best Illustrated Books of the Year. David's favorite show-and-tell memory is of a girl from his first grade class who brought in a huge hunk of meat wrapped in wax paper. It was from a dinosaur, she said, though David thought it smelled like ham. He lives in Springfield, Ohio, with his wife and their two children.
