Overview

A hilarious companion to the New York Times bestselling Miss Brooks Loves Books! (and I don't) about the power of stories and storytelling. Missy loves her librarian, Miss Brooks. And she loves to go to Miss Brooks' before-school story time. But to get to Story Nook, she has to pass Billy Toomey's house-and she does not love Billy Toomey. Billy always tries to steal her hat and jeers, "I'm going to get you!" It's vexing. Then one rainy (and hatless) day, Miss Brooks changes story hour to storytelling hour. She teaches the kids about characters and plot and action and satisfying conclusions and encourages them to make up their own tales. And that's when Missy has a brainstorm. She sees a way to use her made-up story to deal with her real-life bully. In this terrifically funny ode to inventiveness and ingenuity, Barbara Bottner and Michael Emberley celebrate the power of stories and how they can help us to rewrite our own lives. This Read & Listen edition contains audio narration.
