    DescriptionPatricia Polacco's bestselling book - with over 400,000 copies sold - "Thank You, Mr. Falker" celebrates what a good teacher can be. And now her heartwarming tribute to the teacher who changed her life is available in a special unjacketed mini edition that makes the perfect gift for both kids needing encouragement and the teachers who are their heroes. When Trisha starts school, she can't wait to learn how to read, but the letters just get jumbled up. She hates being different, and begins to believe her classmates when they call her a dummy. Then, in fifth grade, Mr. Falker changes everything. He sees through her sadness to the gifted artist she really is. And when he discovers that she can't read, he helps her prove to herself that she can - and will!

Young readers struggling with learning difficulties will identify with Trisha's situation and find reassurance in her success." - Publishers Weekly "Will encourage the child who feels like a failure and the teacher who cares." - Booklist "Polacco shares a personal story with engaging results. This moving saga . . . makes an inspiring picture book." - School Library Journal
