This book starts off with the main character, Henry P, late to "school". He is explaining to the teacher why he was late to school using random words that we can decode by using pictures and context clues. In the back of the book, it gives you a decoding page that explain what each of these made up word means. I think this will be a fun book for kindergarten/pre-school students to read. They love hearing nonsense words and it'll be enjoyable for them to try and figure out what each of the these words mean. They can predict and check their answers later. It's fantasy because the setting is in outer space but the whole concept of the book, where the child makes an excuse for his tardiness, is a familiar experience for all children.
