Ty Perry’s second-grade life is crazier than ever.
He’s trying hard not to worry too much, but that’s not easy when his brain is filled with so many thoughts, like finally finding a pet for Baby Maggie, his sometimes-crazy classmates, and the dreaded neck-pinch-of-death. And then there’s his upcoming recitation about doing an act of kindness in front of the whole class!
Ty remains his wacky, curious self in this bighearted second installment of the Life of Ty series. Practicing kindness, random or not, doesn’t take that much worrying after all. Being kind is part of being Ty.

It was a fortunate mix of ingredients that formed illustrator Jed Henry (jedhenry.tumblr.com). Barefoot summers on the Ohio River. Painting trips in the country with his mom. A few years spent roaming the streets of Tokyo. Jed thanks his lucky stars for all these experiences, and draws on them daily to flavor his books. When Jed illustrates, he's always surprised by what happens on the next page, and he hopes his readers are having just as much fun. Jed currently lives in the Rocky Mountains of Utah with his brilliant wife and two beautiful daughters.
