This isn't a story -- not exactly. It's more of an extended poem. It starts with how a student feels on the first day of school and the describes different feelings of inferiority, desire, aloneness, guilt, identity crisis, confusion, disgust, rejection, shame, bitterness, and sarcasm experienced by students & directed toward their teachers. The book ends with an invitation from student to teacher to learn how to be a child again.

This book is also a compilation of pictures by no less that 29
