A boy has some amazing excuses for being late for school in this “fantastical tale . . . A whimsical romp” (School Library Journal).
First, some giant ants stole breakfast.
Then there were the evil ninjas, massive ape, mysterious mole people, giant blob, and countless other daunting (and astonishing) detours along the way to school. Are these excuses really why this student is late? Or is there another explanation that is even more outrageous than the rest?
From Davide Cali and Benjamin Chaud, the critically acclaimed author/illustrator team behind I Didn’t Do My Homework Because . . . comes a fast-paced, action-packed, laugh-out-loud story about finding the way to school despite the odds—and the unbelievable oddness!
“Chaud’s signature cartoon illustrations delight with eccentric and humorous details on every page.” —School Library Journal
“A series of hilariously surreal situations.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Highly entertaining.” —Booklist
