Billy loves to draw. He draws on books and on his homework and even on his math testsÃ¢ÂÂhe might not get the answer right, but doesnÃ¢ÂÂt it look swell sitting in a boat at sea? His teacher doesnÃ¢ÂÂt think so, and neither does the principal. But the librarian has an idea that just might help Billy better direct his illustrative energies: a book-making contest!
Billy gets right to work, reading everything he can about meteors, mythology, space travel, andÃ¢ÂÂ¦mucus? Yep, his book is going to be about the worldÃ¢ÂÂs smartest booger, who stays tucked away until neededÃ¢ÂÂsay, to solve multiplication problems, or answer questions from the President. BillyÃ¢ÂÂs sure his story is a winner. But being a winner doesnÃ¢ÂÂt mean you always win.
