Synopsis

A day at school is:
a. marvelous
b. dreadful
c. silly
d. all of the above—and much, much more!

From suspicious hot lunches (yuck!), to pop quizzes (oh, no!), to recess and best friends (hooray!), everything you love—and love to hate—about school is front and center in this collection of eighteen poems by thirteen celebrated poets. One thing's for certain: there's no place like school!
