A book is good company. It is full of conversation without loquacity. It comes to your longing with full instruction, but pursues you never.

Norman was the signmaker's assistant. He longed to have a shop of his own. One day he notices that people obey signs. That gave him an idea! What if he painted a sign that said "No School Today"? What if he painted other mischievous signs?

This is a really amusing book. I enjoy it quite a bit every time I read it. My students always laugh when I read it to them. It is funny and clever. But the best part is the pictures. Tedd Arnold has a great style that is easy to recognize. I love his art work. If you like funny books with great pictures, pick up any book illustrated by Tedd Arnold, especially this one!
