I Hate School, Paperback
4 out of 5 (2 ratings)


A hilarious picture book about the joys of school from the top class team, Jeanne Willis and Tony Ross.

Honor Brown cannot find a good word to say about her school despite much prompting.

She insists that her teacher is a warty toad, the water tray has killer sharks in it, and even her friends are loathsome.

But when the time comes to move on to Big School, she sits in the corner and sobs!

Maybe it wasn t so bad after all."

Wow! This book was very interesting. It was full of humor and showed how some students might view school. I dont know if I would read this book to k-2 graders, but the upper grades I might!

Visually reminiscent of older "Peanuts" comic strips, "I hate school" is a playfully delightful tale of young Honor Brown and her extreme distaste for school. With a poetic flow and hillarious artwork, this book would assuredly entertain readers as young as 1st or 2nd grade adjusting to school life. Definitely a good one for a read aloud session due to its comical and comforting nature..
