Late for School by Steve Martin


Late for School by Steve Martin

Getting to school has never been quite this difficult - or hilarious. Celebrated writer and performer Steve Martin and dynamic artist C. F. Payne (illustrator of John Lithgow's children's books) have teamed up to tell a story of the adventure, danger and laughs of the journey to school. Packaged with the book is a CD of Martin on banjo and vocals, singing the book's story with a bluegrass twist. Undoubtedly destined to be a new classic for readers of all ages, Late to School is the perfect gift to be read - and listened to - again and again.
