My New Teacher and Me! By Al Yankovic –ADVISABLE

Yankovic, Al My New Teacher and Me! 40 pgs. HarperCollins, 2013. $13.68.  Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G; Violence: G.
Billy has a stern and strict new teacher at school, Mr. Booth. When he wants to know why Billy is so dirty, well he finds out. But Billy’s stories are each more imaginative and outlandish than the next. Mr. Booth doesn't believe a word of it and just as he is about to send Billy to the Principal, he finds out that wild things can be true and imagination is a good thing too. I really liked this book, I think students will appreciate the humor in finding out that sometimes wild stories can be true, and that adults aren't always right.

Admittedly, I bought this because of his music, but it was a decent book as well, and he was super nice at his book signing!
