Regular price Rs. 350.00
In this Newbery Honor book, award-winning author Kevin Henkes delivers a short, satisfying, laugh-out-loud funny school and family story complete with homework (dioramas!), school shows (original poetry performed at microphones!), canceled sleepovers and epic sibling temper tantrums. Told in four short sections, The Year of Billy Miller follows second grader Billy Miller through the school year. Like all Henkes books, this novel is exquisitely and honestly told. What makes it especially distinctive is its great sense of humor and its focus on what matters the most to kids - from what to call your parents when you are no longer a baby, to figuring how to coexist with a younger sibling, to dealing with bossy classmates. This is quintessential Henkes and a great book by an author working at the top of his game. It is a perfect short chapter book for the early elementary grades that will appeal to readers of the Ramona books andrew Clements novels and the Clementine books. Illustrated throughout with black-and white art by the author.
