Morris Goes To School
Morris Goes To School. B. Wiseman. 1970. HarperCollins. 64 pages.
Morris the Moose wanted candy. He went to the wrong store. The man in the store said, "We don't sell candy. Can't you read?" Then he showed Morris the candy store.
Has Morris gotten any smarter since his last adventure? Or is he still a silly not-so-little moose? Is wanting candy enough reason to want to go to school to learn to read and count? It is for Morris! So he tries out school. For one day. Will it be enough to master what he needs to know?
I liked this one growing up. It is silly. It is so obviously silly that it works.
