Mrs. Brown loves museums -- and so does her class! In fact, these cultural connoisseurs are just wild about field trips. Whether it's sneaking up on an ancient Egyptian mummy, walking into a room of fluttering butterflies, or stomping through a giant heart, this class surely makes the grade when it comes to fun. They even take a tour of a skull exhibit and visit a lady who turned to soap! But the excitement doesn't stop there -- author Susan Katz uses a wide variety of poetic forms and unusual exhibits to show just how fascinating museums can be. Her text paired with the hilarious illustrations of acclaimed artist R. W. Alley will have readers grabbing their permission slips and readying themselves for a day of museum madness.
R. W. Alley is the illustrator of many beloved books, including the Paddington Bear picture book series. He lives in Barrington, Rhode Island. Visit him at www.rwalley.com.
