|From The Publisher*||In this exuberant companion to If I Built a Car, a boy fantasizes about his dream school--from classroom to cafeteria to library to playground.|
My school will amaze you. My school will astound.
By far the most fabulous school to be found!
Perfectly planned and impeccably clean.
On a scale, 1 to 10, it's more like 15!
And learning is fun in a place that's fun, too.
If Jack built a school, there would be hover desks and pop-up textbooks, skydiving wind tunnels and a trampoline basketball court in the gym, a robo-chef to serve lunch in the cafeteria, field trips to Mars, and a whole lot more. The inventive boy who described his ideal car and house in previous books is dreaming even bigger this time.
|Review Quote*||"An all-day sugar rush, putting the 'fun' back into, er, education." -Kirkus|
"Told in excellently structured rhyming couplets, this story has a Seussian feel, although the vocabulary is much more varied and advanced. . . . Reluctant readers will be especially intrigued." -School Library Journal
