The good (Lunchroom Magic by Charles Ghigna), the bad (It's Today? by Sara Holbrook) and the naughty (The Drinking Fountain by Kenn Nesbitt) will have your students, children and grandchildren laughing out loud and sympathizing with the students in Prelutsky's newest collection of poetry. Many poets, along with Jane Manning's illustrations, have nailed the world of school perfectly. Also, parents will remember their own school days with fond memories and teachers will have their own Why the Frog in Our Class Is Purple moments to be reminded of. — Jeanette
