Update: First day of school for kids in this house, 8/23/17!
Each year I and my family read and rate all the Goodreads picture book nominees. This one is nominated for 2016. I make a few comments and then add their separate ratings and a comment. There's 15 and this is the third being rated. My rating might be somewhat influenced by the family, naturally.
In this one, the school building is a character, and it's a new school, Frederick Douglas Elementary, that talks with the janitor, learning it as it goes, learning to see what its purpose is, to be there in the best way it can for kids. And the building also does fun stuff TO kids, which is funny. I think there's too many words for a picture book, but the images by rock star illustrator Robinson (last year's Newbery winner for Last Day at Market Street) are great. I thought they could have done even more fun things with the building doing stuff to kids for fun, but this is a really likable book! And reminds me of Chris Ware's Building Stories, where the building has consciousness. 4 stars.
Tara (my wife): 4 stars. Fun. I liked it when the building squirted the boy.
Harry (11): 4 stars. Same as mom.
Hank (10): 3 1/2 stars. Cool, awesome. I liked how the school learned, also.
Lyra (9): 3 1/2 stars. Read it twice already at school.

Read information about the authorAdam Rex grew up in Phoenix, Arizona, the middle of three children. He was neither the smart one (older brother) or the cute one (younger sister), but he was the one who could draw. He took a lot of art classes as a kid, trying to learn to draw better, and started painting when he was 11. And later in life he was drawn down to Tucson in order to hone his skills, get a BFA from the University of Arizona, and meet his physicist wife Marie (who is both the smart and cute one).
Adam is nearsighted, bad at all sports, learning to play the theremin, and usually in need of a shave. He can carry a tune, if you don't mind the tune getting dropped and stepped on occasionally. He never remembers anyone's name until he's heard it at least three times. He likes animals, spacemen, Mexican food, Ethiopian food, monsters, puppets, comic books, 19th century art, skeletons, bugs, and robots.
Garlic and crosses are useless against Adam. Sunlight has been shown to be at least moderately effective. A silver bullet does the trick. Pretty much any bullet, really.
