10985052_10153198587330446_1346757358648824_nIn the follow up to “I Didn’t Do My Homework Because…” comes another fantastical, humour-filled offering from Davide Cali and Benjamin Chaud.

A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To School…” published by Chronicle Kids, offers a plethora of weird and wonderful excuses (or are they?) for arriving late to school.

From an unprovoked attack by evil ninjas and breakfast stealing giant ants, to a paparazzi moment with Yeti and Bigfoot, this fast moving story will arm the reader with the most extreme reasons for being late to school.

Packed with hyperbolic action, humour and madcap excuses, this can’t fail to keep the reader entertained.

Chaud’s visual humour in this book and the subtle references to classic fairytale, make for a highly amusing tale and totally incredulous story, with a great twist at the end.
