Having read Gerry's first book, Bubba Begonia You'll Be Sorry, and hearing him read aloud from it at a meeting for teacher-librarians, I knew it would be the perfect book to recommend to the Grade 3 teachers at my school when they came looking for read-aloud suggestions from me in September. First one teacher, then the other read it aloud to their classes. The students LOVED it.

What a way to kickstart a year of reading!
