Author(s): Benjamin Chaud
How many excuses are there for not doing homework? Let us count the ways: Giant lizards invaded the neighbour-hood. Elves hid all the pens. And then there was that prob--lem with carnivorous plants...The excuses go on and on, each more absurd than the next and escalating to hilarious heights. Featuring detail-rich illustrations by illustrator Ben--jamin Chaud, this book is guaranteed to amuse kids and their parents, not to mention anyone who has experienced a slacker student moment--and isn't that everyone?
"Chaud's illustrations, reminiscent of Edward Gorey, are as imaginative as the excuses."--USA Today, ***1/2 out of four star review
