""Kids will love the lighthearted artwork, Miss Brooks' thoughtful replies to Michael's outrageous correspondence and the international adventures that threaten to keep him out of school." - L.A. Parent" - L.A. Parent Magazine
""This entertaining book is perfect for the beginning of school - and the best letter is the last, a postcard from the zoo field trip to his mom and dad where he explains that he'll be staying at the zoo to work with the wild animals." - Colorado Parent" - Colorado Parent
""The wild, colorful illustrations show the imaginative play, and kids with back-to-school panic will find comic relief in these over-the-top scenes." " - Booklist
"Husband's bright, doodle-like illustrations and dynamic letters will help readers realize real-life escapades can be as fun as imaginary ones." - Publishers Weekly
"It just may be our favorite back-to-school read yet." -
""When Michael gets a letter from the principal telling him about his new teacher, he decides he is not going back to school in the autumn. He sends a series of creative letters to his teacher saying why he won't be in class when school starts. He imagines many adventures from skiing down Mt. Everest, riding a motorcycle around the pyramids in Egypt, taking a raft down the Amazon River where he finds hidden treasure, being attacked by pirates, chasing pirates on the Orient Express. His faithful dog goes on all these adventures with him. By the end of the book Michael does go to school and is having a great time on a field trip to the zoo. The boldly colored artwork is not sophisticated, and the reader could believe that a child did them. Boy readers will like the book as well reluctant readers. It is fun and colorful, imaginative and thought provoking. It would be a fun read-along with a discussion on Predicting what comes next. Recommended." - Library Media Connection" - Library Media Connection
