PreS-Gr 2—Stanley and his dog friends wonder what kids do in school all day. They decide they are tired of waiting ("Wait outside the library. Wait outside the coffee shop. Wait outside the bakery.") and decide to go inside the school. The four canines embark on quite an adventure as they discover lunch before being chased by the janitor through the gymnasium, music room, and art room. Their journey ends with a trip to the principal's office. This dog's-eye view of a day at school will leave readers laughing with delight. The acrylic illustrations are colorful and detailed.
VERDICT Stanley fans will enjoy the latest escapade in the series.
