Product Description

Amazon Review

The irrepressible mouse heroine of Chester's Way and Julius, the Baby of the World returns for another true-to-life and very funny episode. Lilly loves everything about school, especially her teacher, Mr Slinger--until he takes away her musical purse because she can't stop playing with it in class. Lilly decides to get revenge with a nasty drawing of "Big Fat Mean Mr Stealing Teacher!", but when she finds the kind note he put in her purse, she's filled with remorse and has to find a way to make things right again. Children will sympathize with Lilly's impulsive mistake and laugh uproariously at the witty and expressive pictures of the very human mice. (Ages 4 to 8) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

... A book so delightful, so exuberant, honest and evocative about the passionate life children lead ... (THE NEW YORK TIMES)

If you have a child starting school this September, rush out and buy this book at once. If you already have a child in infants it will make a brilliant end-of-term present for their teacher. It has an exuberant heart that beats with sheer joy about the pleasures of school and inspirational teachers... it is just so perfect you will share it again and again.' (The Guardian)

... Warm, witty and wonderful. I love this book! (Vivian French, THE GUARDIAN) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
