Oh No! Not Again! (Or How I Built a Time Machine to Save History) (Or At Least My History Grade)

Mac Barnett, illus. by Dan Santat. Disney-Hyperion, $17.99 (40p) ISBN 978-1-4231-4912-5
The studious, pigtailed girl whose science project got out of hand in Oh No! hasn’t quite learned her lesson. When she misses one question on her history test (she incorrectly answers that Belgium is the location of the oldest prehistoric cave paintings), she travels via time machine to prehistoric Belgium to alter history and ensure that her answer is correct. Barnett’s deadpan prose and Santat’s page-popping art hilariously reveal what happens when you mess with history, while delivering a light message about the perils of perfectionism. Ages 4–8. Agent: Steven Malk, Writers House. Illustrator’s agent: Jodi Reamer, Writers House. (June)
