In this vertically oriented book, Michael and his dog, Bruno, travel from Egypt to the moon, down the Amazon and up Mount Everest, all while sending letters to Michael’s new teacher, Miss Brooks, to explain his anticipated lateness on the first day of school (“NASA wants me to go on a space mission.... I told them about the math tests, but they said that the future of the planet has to come first”). But when Michael receives a reply reminding him what he’ll miss, he may just decide to give school a try. Husband’s bright, doodle-like illustrations and dynamic letters will help readers realize real-life escapades can be as fun as imaginary ones. Ages 4–8. (July)
