Wilson loves school so much, he just can’t wait to get there, but things at school seem a little different today, as he finds himself all alone as a mysterious creature slinks nearer! Wilson’s enthusiasm is infectious, and this charming book is a staff favorite!— Flannery
A charming school story with a twist—new from John Stadler!
Wilson had just finished his first week of school and could not wait for the next one to begin. He was very fond of his new teacher, Miss Lovely. But something was wrong that day—very wrong. There were no school buses, the school itself was empty, and something strange was approaching. Undeterred and ever-hopeful that he would see Miss Lovely soon, Wilson went through his normal school day alone—he did his math lesson alone, his science lesson alone, sent himself to the principal’s office when he was naughty, and more, but still . . . something was approaching.
Stadler skillfully uses gatefold flaps to keep the suspense mounting until we find out just who—or what—was approaching.
Readers will love following Wilson and his day at school right out of a Twilight Zone episode in this funny, sweet, and sometimes scary story.
Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, July 13, 2009:
"The surprise conclusion delivers a big payoff."
