Rules for School

Alec Greven, illus. by Kei Acedera, Collins, $9.99 (48p) ISBN 978-0-06-195170-1

The 11-year-old author of the bestselling How to Talk to Girls and its successors is back with a set of rules to help students “get ready, take charge, and rule the school.” Concise rules (“Rule 3: You’re going to be nervous—get over it!”) are followed by explanations, tips, and “facts” (“21% of kids are excited to go to school, 70% of kids are scared, and 9% of kids just don’t really care”) and accompanied by black ink illustrations. Greven’s advice about staying out of trouble, asking questions, and making friends is consistently reassuring. All ages. (July)
