About the Author:

Carol Shields (1935-2003) is the author of The Stone Diaries, which won the 1995 Pulitzer Prize for fiction, the National Book Critics Circle Award, and Canada's Governor General's Award. Her other novels and short-story collections include The Republic of Love, Happenstance, Swann, The Orange Fish, Various Miracles, The Box Garden, and Small Ceremonies (all available from Penguin).

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4?A frisky collection of 24 childlike perceptions of the zanier happenings during a school day. The poems' appeal relies on irreverent topics, robust action, sing-song rhythms, and rhyming couplets. The bright, expressive cartoonstyle illustrations highlight the rollicking nature of most of the selections. Kids will greet them with enthusiasm, but there needs to be more to poetry than rhyming words. Some of the verses do challenge young minds. The child in "Who Needs School?" has art, spelling, and calculator skills thanks to her computer, but realizes, "...Just don't unplug me and I'll be fine." "Moonwalker" features the joyous, imaginative characters a youngster creates on her way home. "Outside/Inside" contrasts the vibrant goings-on outside the classroom to the humdrum inside. The word-counting antics of the struggling boy in "Book Report" leave a poignant message. In all, good for a quick, fun fix on a down day.?Ronald Jobe, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada
