Suzy Becker, the author and illustrator of the runaway bestseller All I Need to Know I Learned from My Cat and My Dog's the World's Best Dog, teams up with elementary school children to write a little book of a different sort-how to make the world all better.
Illustrated in full-color with Suzy Becker's distinctive joyous, whimsical style, the book captures the essence of the children's ideas. On how bosses could make the workplace more pleasant, Yesenia, 9, says "Give a break for five hours." On the issue of what to do with lawbreakers, a 7-year-old named Lily says: "Make them do gymnastics for a month." When asked how to repair the hole in the ozone layer, Sara, age 8, says: "Get some dirt and seeds and plant flowers over the hole to make it look pretty for the aliens." All better. Selection of the Literary Guild. Over 130,000 copies in print.
