A hilarious companion to the New York Times bestselling Miss Brooks Loves Books! (and I don’t) about the power of stories and storytelling.
 
Missy loves her librarian, Miss Brooks. And she loves to go to Miss Brooks’ before-school story time. But to get to Story Nook, she has to pass Billy Toomey’s house—and she does not love Billy Toomey.
 
Billy always tries to steal her hat and jeers, “I’m going to get you!” It’s vexing. Then one rainy (and hatless) day, Miss Brooks changes story hour to storytelling hour. She teaches the kids about characters and plot and action and satisfying conclusions and encourages them to make up their own tales.
 
And that’s when Missy has a brainstorm. She sees a way to use her made-up story to deal with her real-life bully.
 
In this terrifically funny ode to inventiveness and ingenuity, Barbara Bottner and Michael Emberley celebrate the power of stories and how they can help us to rewrite our own lives.

About the Author:

BARBARA BOTTNER studied painting in Paris, worked as a set desinger, toured as part of an acting ensemble, and made animated shorts for Sesame Street before turning to writing and illustrating children's books. She is the author of more than 36 books, including Miss Brooks Loves Books! (and I Don't) and Bootsie Barker Bites, illustrated by Peggy Rathmann.

MICHAEL EMBERLEY has been writing and illustrating children's books since 1979. He has more than 20 books to his credit, and he has a sister and father (Rebecca and Ed) who also make children's books. His hobbies include bicycle racing, bike riding, cycling, mountain biking, and avoiding driving.

From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 2—When a power outage strikes during story time, the school librarian invites her students to create a tale. Due to conflicts of preference—ogres, snakes, kittens, or ghosts—the students create their own endings to the tale of Graciela the witch. The narrator, a charmingly disheveled young girl, decides to rev up the horror in her tale in order to intimidate the class bully. Emberley's cartoons detail imaginary reptiles and fearful children with equal panache. The story introduces some elements of fiction writing, such as plot, action, and endings. Elementary-aged readers will identify with the classroom dynamics.—Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA
