The Lovereading4Kids comment

A perfect companion to the holiday season. Written in the form of letters from a little boy called Michael who writes some terrifically witty notes to his new teacher to explain why he can be late getting back to school. The letters are wonderfully authentic and their content ranges from Everest to life on a rocket ship. Great food for the imagination!!!
