It's no ordinary day for Marvin Redpost and his class. It's "hole day," and even Mrs. North and Principal McCabe are wearing their very worst clothes. It seemed like a fun idea that morning, but now they're expecting company--the president of the United States is on his way! And there's no time to change! Marvin must do math on the blackboard with television cameras pointing at him. And the day is just beginning!
"Aside from being resoundingly funny, Sachar has a rare honesty about what children really encounter in the world." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
