When Our Kid decides to dawdle on his way to school, he is about to get in felmumpingly big trouble!
"Go straightly to school, Our Kid," said Dad. But unless a fish-driven submarine, dinopirates and an elephant ride are the fastest way to school, Our Kid is not doing too well.
This tour-de-force from the legendary Tony Ross takes you on a journey to school like no other, and shows that sometimes the oddballs (especially of the goat variety) win the day!

With a sympathetic protagonist and lovably quirky ink-and-watercolor illustrations, this picture book delivers plenty of read-aloud fun.Booklist
