<p>It's picture day, and the boy at the center of this charming picture book wants to make sure his picture is <i>perfect</i>. It seems as though everything's going wrong for him&#8212;he has bedhead, a stained shirt, and a big scowl on his face.

But just as he smiles, the photo is snapped and his plan is ruined&#8212;the photo looks great.<p>Perfectly paired with the larger-than-life silliness of Dan Santat's illustrations, this is sure to be a schoolroom favorite.

This slapstick picture book will appeal most to school-age kids who will get the jokes peppered throughout the text and the visuals."<p>&#8212;<i>School Library Journal<p>"</i>The narrator's malleable features are in a perpetual state of contortion as he plans his photo disaster and reacts to the series of unfortunate events that conspire to bring him glory. Clever bits such as the scribbled emoticons on his September calendar page, and the sepia- and gray-toned faces that play in his imagination add to the fun."<p>&#8212;<i>The Bulletin of The Center for Children's Books</i>
