Book or Bell?

Chris Barton, Ashley Spires (Illustrator)
The first page has Henry hooked. The second page has him captivated. The third page . . . BBBBRRRRIIIIINNNNNGGGGG! . . . will have to wait. That is, unless Henry ignores the bell, stays put, and keeps on reading the most awesome book. By not springing up with the ringing of the bell, Henry sets off a chain reaction unlike anything his school or town has ever seen. Luckily, Mayor Wise, Governor Bright, and Senator Brilliant know exactly what the situation calls for: A louder bell. MUCH louder. With this hilarious, high-energy satire from bestselling author Chris Barton and illustrator Ashley Spires, readers will be cheering louder still as one of their own continues to just stay put.

“The first page has Henry hooked. The second page has him captivated. The third page… BBBBRRRRRIIIIINNNNNNGGGG!!!! ...will have to wait.” Unless… Henry just sits still and reads. This funny, light-hearted tale happens at a very, very noisy school, where Henry just reads,and reads, and… READS!! This causes a chain reaction, and a mess! The teacher tells the principal, who tells the mayor, and it goes on and on, but in an extremely funny, and humorous way, until the problem is resolved. Will Henry finally get out of his seat at the loudest bell? Or will he stay until he finishes his book? Find out in this hilarious story. The thorough illustrations were "created with watercolor, ink and, due to the interference of kitten paws - some digital adjustments.” Highly recommended! Submitted by: Mackenna F.
