School of Rock




For those about to read . . . we salute you!

School of Rock hit screens in 2003 and it was an instant hit, remaining the highest grossing music-themed comedy for over a decade. Now fans can enjoy the hilarious and heartwarming story as an adorable full-color picture book!

It’s just another ordinary day at Horace Green Elementary School, and the students think they’re getting just another ordinary substitute teacher. What arrives instead is Dewey Finn, a washed-up musician who whisks them off on a totally rocking adventure. After Dewey hears the kids practicing in music class, he realizes he has another chance at his greatest dream: winning the Battle of the Bands. But when the parents discover what Dewey has been teaching their kids, will the School of Rock even be able to compete?

With all the iconic moments and laugh-out-loud lines of the original, this Pop Classic’s charm and spirit shine on every page. The delightful story of a diverse and passionate group of children coming into their own is a must-have for fans of the film, parents of musical kids, and anyone who’s ever stuck it to the man!
