Filled with wit, humor, and laugh-out-loud verse, the twenty-two poems in this collection are sure to please students and teachers!) of all ages.
A kid's-eye view of school, crammed with enough funny to fill a big yellow bus!
Snappy and hilarious in true Brod Bagert style, these goofy poems are united by their kid authenticity and quirky school themes. From a computer virus that one kid claims is sure to keep him homesick until summer vacation, to the librarian who tames "the savage beast" (a mouse run amok in the library), to a superhero recruited to scare off the school bully, this is most definitely not your typical poetry collection. Robert Neubecker's bright, dynamic artwork propels each poem into another stratosphere of funny. By the end, kids will have contracted a different strain of school fever altogether.
