Clay Hensley is an interesting kid. He likes to get sent to the principals office, and he has a big growing folder of all the times he gets in trouble. Ms. Ormin is the secretary, and she says that Clay's folder is her masterpiece.
When Clay is at art class, the teacher says they can draw anything they want to. So when Clay decides to draw a donkey that looks like the principal. And afterhis older brother Mitch comes home and sees it, everything goes wrongg.
Now, I admit, the story does seem a bit oversimplified. In real life, changing one's behavior can be and often is very challenging and doesn't happen over night. But I think Clements makes his point, that the choices we make follow us as we travel down life's road. I can think of more than a few students whose behavior could lead them down some very painful roads and it makes me sad. The writing is good, typical Clements, and the illustrations provide a nice compliment. Recommended for readers who like a good school story.
I bought this book from Amazon and it was delivered promptly and properly.
