Book Review - A Funny Thing Happened After School

A Funny Thing Happened After School

About the Book
In A Funny Thing Happened After School, it's a race to do homework—in space! But first, there's a spaceship jam. Then there's the moon detour, the Mars alien exploration, and a stop on the gravity-defying International Space Station. And that's just the beginning! Henry and Ali want to get their homework done—they really do! But how are they supposed to study the solar system when they seem to be swept up in an endless series of interstellar surprises?

From Davide Cali and Benjamin Chaud, the author-illustrator team behind 
I Didn't Do My Homework Because . . ., comes an action-packed, entertaining tale about trying to get your homework done, whether you're in—or out—of this world!

I Didn't Do My Homework Because . . .children's book series!

My Take on the Book
If you thought that the statement of "My dog ate my homework" was far-fetched this book seems to go even further (or does it). The book is a delightful tale of two friends as they are asked by their teacher for their homework. Each page is full of beautiful images and a fun story. By the end what you think you know may be in question, so hold onto the very end. The whole story will draw you in on every page with colorful images that just jump off the page. The story is also unique and you will want to see what happens after you read through the entire book!
