Summary – Students rejoice! No more do you need the old line – “The dog ate my homework.” This book is stuffed with new and exciting reasons why you didn’t do your homework! In this book you’ll find creative answers for non-homework doing. Like:
“I didn’t do my homework because…”
giant lizards invaded…
my dog got eaten by another dog…
and much, much more!
Just make sure your teacher hasn’t read the same book.
Opinion– Do I really have to tell you why I like this book after the description? Okay, I will. This book is hilarious! Each excuse gets wilder than the next. The book is one that all kids can enjoy. The illustrations are AWESOME! I love the wildness, and I love the kid’s hair. These are magnificent, the style of them is humorous and well-done.
See what I mean? Mr. Cali and Mr. Chaud created a hilarious book together. The ending of the book is great (let’s just say his teacher is “on to” the boy). I recommend this to any child who has forgotten their homework, forgets their homework, or will forget their homework or is just too lazy to do it. 😉 I don’t recommend this to teachers (for obvious reasons). 😉
