How many excuses are there for not doing homework? Let us count the ways: Giant lizards invaded the neighbour-hood. Elves hid all the pens. And then there was that prob--lem with carnivorous plants...The excuses go on and on, each more absurd than the next and escalating to hilarious heights. Featuring detail-rich illustrations by illustrator Ben--jamin Chaud, this book is guaranteed to amuse kids and their parents, not to mention anyone who has experienced a slacker student moment--and isn't that everyone?

"Even children who don't yet have homework will long to try out a few of these wild explanations for themselves."--Publishers Weekly A Junior Library Guild Selection "Packed with overlapping images and detail. which will encourage careful observation and conversation."-School Library Journal "Once readers pick it up, it's unlikely they'll put it down until it's finished. Especially if there's homework to be done."--Travis Jonker, 100ScopeNotes, a School Library Journal blog "Brilliant! Genius! Clever in the best way possible!"--Books4YourKids "This droll little book can be enjoyed for the cheek of the protagonist, the broad inventiveness of the excuses, and the scale of the whimsical illustrations."--Booklist "Chaud's illustrations, reminiscent of Edward Gorey, are as imaginative as the excuses."--USA Today, ***1/2 out of four star review
