School Can Wait

School Can Wait by Tessa Dahl; ill. Korky Paul (Hamish Hamilton, 1990) This story lies somewhere between an overly wordy picture book and a heavily illustrated middle grade novel featuring zany, animal-rescuing adventures. The eight-year-old protagonist is very much along for the ride but Korky Paul’s black-and-white drawings do much to enliven the characters.
