Wild and crazy! How else to describe a book by Yankovic? If you were a fan of When I Grow Up, run and get this one. Another school-based story of probably the first day of school, this plays a serious, straight laced teacher with Billy the imaginative. Written in rhyme, Billy’s imagination goes crazy explaining situations to Mr. Booth. But in the end, does Mr. Booth see the light? Great fun, wonderful illustrations, a super book for read aloud in class.
