There's an eye toast toady, er, that's eye test today at school, but Wagner can't see the board. As his best friend Pearl says, "It's glasses time!" But Wagner hates his new glasses-they make him look like a guppy, and a mean old bully calls him "Four Eyes." Wagner vows to never wear his glasses again, until Pearl and all his friends give themselves inspired new nicknames just like his. Suddenly, "Four Eyes" has a nice ring to it . . . and being able to see isn't so bad, either!

The delightful fourth book in the Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor-winning series shows how a best friend and a new perspective can change everything.
