I Didn't Do My Homework Because Doodle Book of Excuses by Benjamin Chaud, Davide Cali


I Didn't Do My Homework Because Doodle Book of Excuses by Benjamin Chaud, Davide Cali

From the creators of I Didn't Do My Homework Because...and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to School...comes a laugh-out-loud doodle book inspired by the not-so-true stories that ensue when an assignment is left undone. Silly, absurd, and outrageous excuse-themed art prompts are the springboard for this fun-filled, action-packed doodle extravaganza. Fill in original comics, complete wacky word tales, and use seriously cool sticker sheets for hours of excuse-generating amusement!


Chaud's illustrations, reminiscent of Edward Gorey, are as imaginative as the excuses. --USA Today, ***1/2 out of four star review
