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!
