Katrina would not go near aliens, dinosaurs, or meatloaf. Oh, that last one might not be in this book. What a cute idea for a premise! That is what I thought when I first saw it. Such a simple idea, yet the simple ideas seem to be the hardest to think up. Out of nowhere is most likely.

At least for me. Most of my ideas turn out to be something I reviewed.. They get stuck in my head—the great ones do. I wonder if a full text is okay, too? I would go to a different publisher, of course. I do believe you are right, so guess what I will be reviewing the next few days?

But every other day has no rule. There are some really good books this season. Use the dinosaur excuse—or the aliens. Your teacher will believe those! Of course, he might just laugh at me. I will try to use the penguin delivery one.

I laughed the most at the penguin excuse. Quick thinking that kid is. And the illustrations are great! You back in the saddle again? This is a slim book a kid could carry with him, just in case an excuse is needed.

How easily it could be changed to fit the circumstance: I hope, we hope, everyone hopes! This looks like a silly book. This is a very silly book with a great twist at the end. Is there a picture for each excuse? Not odd like odd and even, but odd like strange. There is a picture for every excuse. That is why there are 40 pages, still, it is a slim book and no bigger than 5 x 7, not a conventional picture book, but then this is for older kids MG.

I wish I had thought of this book. I bet it would have been a cute pb for older kids. I can see how it would appeal to the first grade crowd. It was actually written for middle grade kids, but I think the younger ones would also think it funny. When I woke up I had amnesia. Wait, what's my name? My brother's sister's aunt's dog's owner's brother's kid locked me in my room all weekend.

Just so happened I left my homework on the desk in the office. I cramped my writing hand - masturbating! OR Charlie Sheen ate my homework Because i love cheese. My homework fell in the kitchen sink and got flooded.

My dog ate it xD. Should "Homework Help" be abolished? When you visit a city for the first time, how much "homework" do you do beforehand? Best ever homework excuse? What is "homework" in Spanish? Is it correct to say "many homework"? Answer Questions What effect does Romeo and Juliet have on the reader? What was the stand dev? Anyway the humor is spot-on and the illustrations are splendid and filled with whimsical details, like the dog opening one eye to see the elves with pencils filling their faces, or the narrator, along with his homework, rising straight through the roof when he's abducted by aliens, not to mention the details on that Viking ax.

A I first came across this book in a bookstore. And it's all drawn with a look from the 19th century, including the font, Modern How's that for an oxymoron? This is my choice for Humorous Children's Book of the Year.

Jul 03, Angelina rated it really liked it Shelves: Vackra illustrationer med lite gotisk feeling, vilket jag verkligen gillar.

Jan 20, Jala Collins rated it it was ok Shelves: I really wasn't that fond of this book. The pacing of the story was pretty drawn out and I think that there could have been a better way of bringing out the main idea of the story. However, this book reminds me of a time I didn't do an assignment for school and I tried to come up with various excuses as to why it wasn't completed.

Needless to say, I was held responsible and had to pay the consequence for lying and received a bad grade regardless. As George Washington once said, "It is better to make no excuse than a bad one. Picture book, for Spanish practice. It had nice simple language and was clear and entertaining.

Jul 19, Dawn rated it really liked it. This book would be really fun to read with my class. Our school gives homework each day and it is a big topic!

I wonder if it would work to read this book early in the year after we have talked about homework needing to be done each day as well as the consequences that go with not doing it. Everyone's pretty keen at first, but it doesn't take too long until issues start to creep up. It would be fun to have the kids pick crazy reasons for homework not getting finished, illustrate it, and have it This book would be really fun to read with my class.

It would be fun to have the kids pick crazy reasons for homework not getting finished, illustrate it, and have it on the bulletin board. I wonder if we could get rid of some of the excuses by having a funny discussion starting by reading this book.

A great book about a boy coming up with amazingly farfetched excuses for why he didn't do his homework, ending with a bit of a meta-joke, which I'm not sure how I feel about.

I love that in the pictures he is trying his darndest to do the homework, but to no avail. When the brother was mentioned I then started looking for him in the context of the family but he only appeared one other time, so I was a little confused, but I guess he is a teenager, so it's understandable that he wouldn't be seen i A great book about a boy coming up with amazingly farfetched excuses for why he didn't do his homework, ending with a bit of a meta-joke, which I'm not sure how I feel about.

Mar 20, Romelle rated it liked it Shelves: I Didn't' Do My homework Because By Davide Cali is a great guidebook for school children everywhere. Need an excuse for not doing your homework? This book offers 26 zany excuses you can pick from.

That is pretty much what the book is about. I did chuckle on several of the excuses. I am sure kids will find this book hilarious so for entertainment value and kid appeal, I give it 5 stars. The quirky, fun illustrations by Benjamin Chaud was a nice compliment to the book. Dec 22, Jessalyn King rated it it was amazing Shelves: All of these excuses are amazing, but I appreciate the ending the best, when he asks 'why don't you believe me?
