The students at Pokeweed Public School love to read and each year teacher/librarian Ms. Mudwortz devotes a week to exploring how books are written and published. The students all create their own picture books and then celebrate Book Week by inviting their favorite author for a visit.
Things don't work out quite as planned though when Principal Slugmeyer fails to recognize the guest of honor -- adventure writer Reginald Thornbottom -- and escorts the wrong visitor through the school. As the grand finale presentation is about to fall into chaos, Ms. Mudwortz saves the day by finding the missing author.
Teachers, librarians and kids alike will enjoy this entertaining explanation of how books are created -- brought to life with Bianchi's usual assortment of oddball animal characters and a lot of laughs.
