I'll bet every great thinker and leader we've got Could see all kinds of things other people could not!
Billy is a small boy with a big imagination.
Mr. Booth is a serious teacher with a strict lesson plan.
When the irresistible force of Billy's unrestrained creativity meets the immovable object of Mr. Booth's fi xed worldview, one thing is obvious: someone is going to learn a lot this school year!
The irrepressible Billy, star of the New York Times bestselling When I Grow Up, returns in an uproarious back-to-school tale from the uniquely inspired "Weird Al" Yankovic. Dazzling wordplay and sparkling rhyme combine in this appreciation of the rewards of unabashed originality and the special joy of viewing the world gently askew.

Overall, a very impressive sequel to Weird Al's first book. I was a little surprised by the speed with which Mr. Booth came around to Billy's way of thinking, but I also realize there are space/time considerations for a children's book.
I'm probably going to have to buy a second copy of the book. My son has already laid claim to my first one.
The same illustrator is also used again in Wes Hargis. His illustrations are detailed, well drawn and colourful, but he's not a comedic illustrator like say Adam Rex or other similar authors you'll find who put lots of hidden jokes in their artwork you might expect to find in a picture book by Al.
Basic plot of this one follows Billy on his first day or a new school year. His new teacher is a serious orderly type who stops his I'm your new teacher spiel and this is what I expect when he notices Billy's shirt is covered in dirt. When he asks Billy about it, readers may expect like they probably would, that he'd just apologise and promise to come to class clean in the future. But Billy sees the world differently, he tells him he was digging to China and found a dinosaur skull and realising he would be late to school didn't have time to clean up. His teacher Mr. Booth of course doesn't believe a word of it, so Billy sets of to convince him with a number of other tales.Read more ›
Weird Al does a good job of reading in the audiobook, to the point of being wacky at times (well, he IS Weird Al!) but even as I listened, I wanted to see the pictures by Wes Hargis. Looking at the preview pages here on Amazon verified it for me: when my Grandson gets a little older (he's only 4 days old now!), I'll be buying him the physical book versions of both of Al Yankovic's kids' books. And I hope Al has more out by then!
