Children's LiteratureJames intends to earn Mrs. Bremwood's last gold star on the last day of school. He thinks of all the things that he must not do on that last day, such as talking during silent reading time, cutting in line to sharpen his pencil, and spitting out water at the drinking fountain. He expects to surprise the teacher with how much work he can do. He will only go to the bathroom once in the morning and once in the afternoon. And, he'll only wave to the janitor instead of stopping for a chat. He will pay attention and not dream of vacation. He will clean his desk with only three squirts of spray as instructed by the teacher. He will give Mrs. Bremwood a hug that lifts her off the floor and then. . . . The bright pictures convey the humor. This book will be fun the last day of school, not before. 2004, GP Putnam's Sons/Penguin Young Readers Group, Ages 5 to 8.
