Students have all kinds of excuses for why they are late to school and boy is no different. His excuses range from being attacked by evil ninjas to running into Little Red Riding Hood and the Pied Piper. His final excuse is completely outrageous and you can’t help but wonder if he’s telling the truth. Cute idea but not my favorite illustrations.
