In this Spanish edition of Junior Library Guild selection I Didn't Do My Homework Because . . . homework (or the lack thereof) is the inspiration for a laugh-out-loud look at the not-so-true stories that ensue when an assignment is left undone: giant lizards invaded the neighborhood; gremlins hid all the pens; the dog was swallowed up by another dog and the afternoon was spent at the vet. And then there was that problem with carnivorous plants. … The excuses go on and on, each more absurd than the next. With detail-rich illustrations and a delightfully wry text, this favorite by Davide Cali and Benjamin Chaud is guaranteed to amuse kids and their parents, not to mention anyone (and isn't that everyone?) who has experienced a slacker student moment.
