I read this with my 7 year old daughter and she loved it. It tells really cute stories about being in the class room. For example, when the math teacher began giving out too much math homework, the children started breaking out in "math" rashes (they had = signs and + signs etc all over their body). The only way to cure it was to send them to recess.

Another story told of a boy who didn't want to do his homework so he discovered a homework gnome living in the basement of the school. The gnome would do the boy's homework in exchange for one of the boy's senses (sight, hearing, touch, smell etc) for 1 hour. In the end, the boy traded his common sense for the gnomes help and ran into quite a bit of trouble.

There are 9 stories like this and they all have a moral to them. It's definitely a cute read for a child.
