Kaethe Zemach's latest adorable offering is both a sweet school story AND a lesson for little fingers on how to draw!

Dudley Ellington tries, but he's just no good at school. Luckily, he has Ms. McCaw as a teacher. She's patient and she never lets other students pick on Dudley. Also, she knows wonderful things -- why stars shine, how plants grow. Dudley thinks Ms. McCaw knows everything.

Then one day, Ms. McCaw tries to draw a simple face on the chalkboard -- and she can't do it! The other kids start to snicker, but Dudley jumps to the rescue and gives his favorite teacher a drawing lesson. With Kaethe Zemach's cheery illustrations showing the way, all little fingers will itch to take up a pencil!
