A Funny Thing Happened at the Museum
by Davide Calì
illustrations by Benjamin Chaud
There's more to this museum than meets the eye! This is the wonderfully wacky world of celebrated international author-illustrator team Davide Calì and Benjamin Chaud, the duo behind Junior Library Guild selections I Didn't Do My Homework Because . . . , The Truth About My Unbelievable Summer . . . , and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to School . . . . Notoriously (and delightfully) unreliable narrator Henry is late to a museum where his class is spending the day. But he has a plan: He'll just catch up in one of the exhibits. That's not possible in these halls! With volcanoes erupting, dinosaurs charging, and secret stairwells lurking, reuniting with his classmates becomes a quest of outrageous proportions. Young readers will revel in this entertaining book's over-the-top antics.
"Will be popular with tall-tale fans."
“The dynamic European duo of Calì and Chaud once again combine for a cartoony odyssey.”
"Kids will love A Funny Thing Happened at the Museum . . . for the crazy antics and the way Henry makes the museum his own. Humor is on high alert as Henry and his dog travel from exhibit to exhibit, often turning each exhibit into something hysterically Henry."
