A collection of humorous tall tales by Robb Lightfoot. Follow him in and out of the principal’s office. You’ll see the origins of the rock throwing club, how to create the biggest spit-puddle in the world, learn pointers about the fine art of chewing gum and discover why it can be hazardous to your health to try and sneak a peek at a nude sunbather.

Robb’s intent in writing this book, the first in his Tall Tales of a Hyperactive Childhood, is to give teachers and parents a look into the mind of a kid who just can’t seem to follow the rules or stay out of the trouble. It’s not that he tries to be bad; it’s just that he can’t seem to figure out the system. For example, in story, The Encyclopedia Kid, you learn why too much knowledge–and teaching from the back of the classroom–can get you a ticket to Mr. Lewis’ office.

The good news is that “active” kids can and do figure things out eventually, and in Robb’s case, can find their way back into the classroom to teach.

“I used to get sent to the office for talking in class,” Robb says. “Now that I’m a speech teacher, I make people talk in class… and get paid!”
