Synopsis'Go straightly to school, Our Kid,' said Dad. But unless a fish-driven submarine, dinopirates and an elephant ride are the fastest way to school, Our Kid is not doing too well.
This tour-de-force of invention from the legendary Tony Ross takes you on a journey to school like no other, and shows that sometimes the oddballs (especially of the goat variety) win the day!
