Stan wants to do a great birthday card for Mr. Slippers, the principal. But when he tries to write, his words come out back to front and upside down! Stan is afraid to ask for help because he thinks everyone will laugh at him. What will Stan do?
Why I liked this book – First off, the illustrations are CUTE! I love that the kids are animals too, meaning it can be any kid. That is a great message. I like how Stan handles his problem. Jack was a great friend to Stan and I would love it if he was a real person in my grade. I like that this book is a book about a kid that has problems writing. It could be that he has dyslexia or that he is just not as experienced with writing as the other kids. I like that a boy and a girl are having trouble. I like that it shows that girls have trouble too with writing, not just boys. The book also teaches kids to ask for help when they need it and usually there is another person having the same trouble.
