My grandson's review: "I like the pictures. My favorite were the kids hanging from the ceiling and flying through the air. The rules are important. But they forgot one. The most important one. You don't hit the teacher. No smacking her butt or kicking. They really don't like that. I know all about that. I really like this book. I need to read it every night so I am ready for school.I think teacher's should read it on the first day."

If you make excuses, they don't wash with Percy (nor with teachers) and it's a plus to be polite. There are all kinds of little things you need to pay attention to in class. NO foolishness allowed and if you think you're going to think about putting that tack on the teacher's chair . . . don't. Percy Isaac Gifford is a seasoned pro and does know what you can and cannot do at school. There are many important rules, but Rule 8 is more of the most important of all: "No teasing, taunting, fighting. / No punches, pokes, or kicks. / you should not laugh at others. / Never, ever play mean tricks." That means spitballs are out of the question. If you want to learn about things not to do you might want to listen to Percy Isaac Gifford, a boy in the know!
Percy's humorous back-to-school rules, will give any young student a case of the giggles and a few "ideas." Percy has ten basic rules, but as I read through the book each rule has several subsections, especially his rule about what "NEVER to do in school.Read more ›
