Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: With insight and humor, Jennifer Richard Jacobson explores a common childhood anxiety and finds a quiet opportunity to boost self-esteem, aided by Abby Carter's delightfully expressive illustrations.

Andy Shane did not want to be in school. He did not want to be at morning meeting. He did not want to sit up straight on the rug.

Andy Shane would much rather be home catching bugs with Granny Webb than sitting in class with the likes of know-it-all Dolores Starbuckle. Any minute, Dolores is likely to shout out, "Ms. Janice, someone's not sitting properly!" or "Ms. Janice, someone's misusing the math materials!" (meaning him, of course). At rhyme time, the words bug and rug get stuck in Andy’s throat while Dolores yells out of turn, "Hullabaloo!" and "Kalamazoo!"

"I hate school," he blurts out at the end of the day to Granny Webb, who is sympathetic but firm. But when Granny makes a surprise visit to school with a monarch caterpillar, everyone is mesmerized, and Andy remembers how much he knows about insects himself. Even Dolores Starbuckle can't help but be impressed!
