Sourcebooks Jabberwocky (2010)
24 pages

Summary: When Michael gets a letter from the teacher he will have in September, he writes back a bunch of letters about why he will not be in school. 

This book is cute. It opens like an envelope and is read top to bottom instead of side to side.  The letters Michael writes look like letters. They look like a child’s printing and is on lined paper. Each letter is accompanied by adorable illustrations, also by Amy Husband.

Michael comes up with all sorts of imaginative reasons why he is unable to attend school From Secret Missions to the Pyramids to Secret Treasure, Michael thinks it all up. This book would be good for a child who has trouble imagining. I think it might give him or her some great ideas.

I absolutely LOVE the illustrations, they are bright and colourful and really make you look to see if there’s a little something you might be missing.
