‘Just because you can’t spell, doesn’t mean you can’t write.’ This is on the cover of this bright, fun hardback.
A little boy is full of stories. They take over his dreams at night and fill his head during the day, but he is ashamed of his spelling, which overshadows his ideas in the classroom. When a new teacher comes along, who doesn’t care about his spelling, the little boy’s confidence in his writing and ideas blossom.
It’s all about the idea or the story at first – spelling and grammar can come later.
