A familiar childhood ritual is given a fresh, nutty spin in this tale of how kids want things to be fun and parents want things to be normal. But everybody will smile when Billy Tartle gets into the picture
Michael Townsend, a recent graduate of the School of Visual Arts, makes his debut with this fun, loopy story. He lives in Lansdale, Pennsylvania.

Starred Review, The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, July/August 2007:
"[Billy's] adventurous take on reality fits the comic-strip medium perfectly, joining with the straightforward physical comedy of his exploits to add energy."
