The irrepressibly inquisitive Marco is off to school in this picture book from New Yorker cartoonist Roz Chast. Marco is the busiest bird, and it's time he goes to school! There is so much to do at school, from lessons to lunch to building a block tower to the moon! But Marco soon learns that his plans for the day may be just a bit too ambitious. Luckily, school has one extra surprise for him--and that's a new friend!
In Marco's latest wacky adventure, acclaimed cartoonist Roz Chast proves that it's not getting to the moon that counts--it's the friends we make along the way.

Review quote

"In Too Busy Marco (2010), the red parrot had too much on his plate. Now he is BORED. Marco's mom has the antidote--school--which turns out to be more interesting than he expected. Well, not school per se. That's boring. But there are things in the classroom that pique his imagination, and before long he and the other kids are piling blocks up to reach the moon. The New Yorker cartoonist Chast is as offbeat as ever. Watercolor-and-ink drawings in her distinctive style have plenty of visual asides and silly moments.... A slightly older picture-book crowd will be the best audience." --Booklist Online, August 29, 2012
