Horn Book Review

Michael tells his mom everything that happened at school (one classmate vomited, another sat in gum, etc.). Every time he gets to a good part (""she stepped in a pile of dog...""), he's censored (""Don't say that word!""). The rhyming verse helps kids fill in the parent-prohibited blank. Zany, grotesque illustrations add another layer of revulsion. (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
