Description

Two major bestselling and award-winning picture book creators combine forces in this truly epic time-traveling follow up to Oh No! (Or How My Science Project Destroyed the World)!

Some kids are too smart for their own good...and maybe for everybody else's good. The overly ambitious little girl from Oh No! is back for more. But this time, she doesn't have a humongous problem, she has an EPIC crisis on her hands: a mere A on her history test! There's only one solution: travel back in time to 33,000 B.C. to make her wrong answer right! Mac Barnett and Dan Santat's laugh-out-loud sequel to the critically acclaimed Oh No! will be sure to tickle a prehistoric funny bone for fans of humor, comics, and outrageous adventure.

* "Wonderfully ridiculous." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Praise For Oh No! Not Again!: (Or How I Built a Time Machine to save History) (Or at Least My History Grade) (An Oh No! Picture Book)

* "Wonderfully ridiculous in premise and execution."—Kirkus Reviews

* "Barnett's deadpan prose and Santat's page-popping art hilariously reveal what happens when you mess with history, while delivering a light message about the perils of perfectionism."—Publishers Weekly

"Santat's bright digital illustrations with lots of graphic elements capture the feel of the cinema....Readers will especially enjoy the hapless cave guys who have no idea what to do with paintbrushes and spray paint but seem to know how to drive the time-travel mobile. Whether they are shoving paintbrushes up their noses, spray-painting their faces, or stabbing each other with pencils, readers will find these Cave Stooges irresistible."—Horn Book
