Description

This funny picture book from Newbery Medal winner Sharon Creech, author of Walk Two Moons, and New Yorker cartoonist Harry Bliss is a delight for kids, with its colorful illustrations and gentle comeuppance for a well-meaning principal who learns that learning outside of school can be just as important as being in school.Tillie goes to a fine, fine school where kids learn about dinosaurs, build pyramids, and paint portraits. When her principal decides to call all the students and teachers together for an announcement, no one could have predicted he would say that there will be school on Saturdays! Soon everyone goes to school on Sundays, holidays, and even the summer. He loves school so much that he forgets to give anyone time off!

One day, Mr. Keene called all the students and teachers together and said, “This is a fine, fine school! From now on, let’s have school on Saturdays too.”

And then there was more.
School all weekend.
School on the holidays.
School in the SUMMER!
What was next …
SCHOOL AT NIGHT?
So it’s up to Tillie to show her well-intentioned principal, Mr. Keene, that even though his fine, fine school is a wonderful place, it’s not fine, fine to be there all the time. Newbery Medal-winning author Sharon Creech and celebrated New Yorker cartoonist Harry Bliss team up in this charming and hilarious book about what happens when the love of learning goes a bit too far.

“Charming.” “Impressive … Expressive … Clever.” “This book has it all.” “Charming, rhythmical and humorous.”
