The Secret Shortcutby Mark Teague
Since they have trouble getting to school on time, Wendell and Floyd take a secret shortcut. But instead of getting to school, they wind up in a wild jungle full of quicksand, monkeys, and crocodiles. Full color.
This is an invigorating massage to the imagination, luxuriantly set in Teague's tactile acrylic illustrations, dreamlike items painted from worm's- and bird's-eye angles. Readers who have found themselves tardy and lacking suitable excuses will prize the brio of Wendell and Floyd.

If you are ever late for school here is the book for you! In the story, The Secret Shortcut, Wendell and Floyd were always late for school so they took a super secret shortcut. It was an exciting and dangerous shortcut. We even thought it was funny. In the end they made it to school but they never found a really good shortcut. We think it is a really cool book because the author put many funny parts in the story. We think you should read this. We are even writing our own stories like it. You can too!
