“Energetic and appealing to young artists everywhere, this one is a winner.” School Library Journal

“Spread after spread is a riot of color, goofy fantasy, and well-choreographed freneticism.” Publishers Weekly

“Readers will relate to the main character’s boredom and spunky reaction. Like Max with his Wild Things, this boy takes control in his own age-appropriate way …budding artists and those who have ever felt misunderstood will cheer on this ‘time out’ king.” Kirkus

The timeout corner has NEVER been this fun!

    WOW! Where have I been? <br /><br />I didn&#39;t know you had teacher guides available. I&#39;ll have to pick up more ink cartridges, so I can print them out. <br /><br />Congratulations on your award, Jean. You know everyone at my house is a fan! =)

    Thanks Kimberly. Yes, the guides are written by award-winning teachers and are tied to learning standards. But here&#39;s what&#39;s even better – they are great activity guides for parents and grandparents too. Gobs of great fun for library, home and school.
