About This Book

In this anthology of humorous short stories about life in school, ten well-known authors will remind young readers of the trials and tribulations of their everyday existence . . . and make them laugh out loud at the same time. Photos and reminiscences of the authors from their own school days add a personal touch to the collection, letting kids know that they aren't the only ones who've had to suffer the indignity of pop quizzes and sloppy joes!
