How Will I Get to School This Year?

by Jerry Pallotta Illustrated by David Biedrzycki

A hilarious back to school story from bestselling duo Jerry Pallotta and David Biedrzycki!

Tomorrow is the first day of school. Why do I always have to ride the school bus? It's boring and smelly! But how else can I get there? Fly on a bald eagle? Get carried by a gorilla? Hop with frogs? None of those seem quite right. So how will I get to school this year?

In their latest effort, bestselling duo Jerry Pallotta and David Biedrzycki playfully imagine all of the different ways a child could get to school from jumping with frogs to riding on the back of your very own elephant. Kids will surely love the imagination in Pallotta's story and laugh along with every one of Biedrzycki's humorous illustrations.

About the Author and Illustrator

Contributor Image Alt Tag Jerry Pallotta Back in 1985, Jerry Pallotta was an insurance salesman, looking for creative ways to teach his children their ABCs. At the age of 32, his imaginative ideas led to him to write and publish his very first book, The Ocean Alphabet Book. He has since created more than 20 alphabet books, and has expanded into creative books for teaching basic math as well.
