Product Description

Has the idea of the first day of school every given you butterflies in your stomach? Welcome to a topsy-turvy world where it sometimes rains cat and dogs, but every cloud has a silver lining. This funny story by award-winning artist Serge Bloch takes a child's-eye look at idiomatic expressions. These commonly used sayings make sense in the adult world, but just imagine what a child pictures when she hears it's "raining cats and dogs!" With witty and wonderful images that mix whimsical line drawings with photographs of inanimate objects, Serge Bloch gives us a unique and sympathetic perspective on a boy's first day of school where colorful butterflies flutter in our hero's stomach and a cloud rains on him when he's "under the weather." Recommended for ages 5 to 8.

Publisher's Description

You can bet your bottom dollar this funny story is the cream of the cropand the best thing since sliced bread! Award-winning artist Serge Bloch will have kids laughing their heads off at this child’s-eye look at idiomatic expressions like “ants in your pants,” “homework is for the birds,” and “cat got your tongue?” These commonly used sayings make sense in the adult world, but just imagine what a child pictures when she hears it’s “raining cats and dogs!” With witty and wonderful images that mix whimsical line drawings with photographs of inanimate objects, Bloch gives us a unique and sympathetic perspective on a boy’s first day of school where colorful butterflies flutter in our hero’s stomach and a cloud rains on him when he’s “under the weather.” Even the “big cheese” Principal has a body cut out of a block of Swiss. 

Editorial Reviews

“…back-to-school fun."--Kirkus

 

"Bloch’s simple though imaginative pictures and clean visual style invite discussion of the deeper meanings of these oft-used phrases, making this an ideal book for the classroom or for one-on-one sharing."– School Library Journal
