Product description

Young scallywag Michael isn’t keen on going to school – as he informs Miss in this wonderful book of increasingly fanciful excuses! In letters, postcards, telegrams and notes sent from all sorts of exotic destinations, he comes up with dozens of rib-tickling reasons why he simply can’t make it to class. Perfect for reluctant readers, this is a delightfully funny and inventive celebration of a child’s boundless imagination, which gives the last word to a clever and very determined Miss!

Shortlisted for the Cambridgeshire Children’s Picture Book Award and the Sheffield Children’s Book Award.

“Very imaginative with bright colourful illustrations. A picture book with a difference.” The School Librarian

“A real winner for day-dream adventurers.” The Bookseller

“Terrifically witty… great food for the imagination!” Lovereading4kids.co.uk
