Silly and absurd, it's a wonderful read for fans of I Want My Hat Back. Klassen is as eventful as ever in his illustrations surprise as Barnett's nonchalant story unfolds to its near-pointless ending. Absolutely fun to read to kids.

The sort of book that speaks to everyone - whether you felt excluded or at times excluded others, doubted yourself or found your voice through the help of others. It's a hopeful book full of memorable characters.

“If we are developing students to be creative, flexible, independent learners, then we cannot scrub away opportunities for mistakes to be made and corrections to be learned. Often times we learn more from what did not go well and we have learned to fix.”
