Our Kid

  • Interest Level: Preschool - Grade 3
  • Reading Level: Grade 2

“Go straight to school, Our Kid,” said Dad. But unless a fish-driven submarine, dinopirates, and an elephant ride are the fastest way to school, Our Kid is not doing too well. This tour-de-force from the legendary Tony Ross takes you on a journey to school like no other and shows that sometimes the oddballs (especially of the goat variety) win the day!
