Publishers Weekly, 2003-08-11 In a larger size and with full-color art, Almost Late to School and More School Poems by Carol Diggory Shields, illus. by Paul Meisel, covers some of the same ground in less slyly subversive poems. The rhymes here list the terrors of giving an oral report and complain about detention ("I'm sitting in detention,/ And I feel like I've been framed./ Sitting in detention,/ I'm the one who got the blame"). Meisel's loose line and watercolor wash matches the breezy tone. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
