The Parents Of Flannery McKracken : Anyone who has ever tried to rouse a youngster out of bed will recognize those defining "A-ha!" moments and relate to the extreme measures that Flannery McKracken's parents must take to get her ready for school. As author Gary Wise expertly illustrates, the waking of Flannery McKracken requires the booming voice of a cannon, the orderliness of a marching band, and the patient, saintly composure of seven fairy godmothers, along with other outrageous solutions. Wise's imaginatively detailed drawings amuse and entertain all readers, while his engaging narrative speaks straight to the heart of the matter, and to the heart of both parent and child. This tale is destined to inspire youngsters to wake with newfound zeal - regardless of whether it happens to be a Saturday, Sunday, or a school-going Monday.
