The first grade narrator of this book has been lots of things: Hungry. Four years old. Crazy bored. Soaking wet. Pretty regular kid ... until he makes a mistake so big that he's sure he will never be able to go back to Lakeview Elementary School. All readers, even those not in first grade, will find the narrator's feelings familiar, and discover that even though embarrassing things happen, they're usually not as bad as they seem. And sometimes they're even funny!
