If Lacey can't remember to put her clothes in the laundry, her mom is going to make her wear a weird grandma shirt to school.... And who knows what could happen?

With his classic style, Robert Munsch takes a normal, everyday situation and turns things upside down! When Lacey goes to get dressed for school she finds she has. . .no clean clothes! Her mom tells Lacey to wear the shirt her grandma gave her. It's a weird shirt that says: "Kiss me, I'm perfect!" Lacey just knows the other kids are going to make fun of her. On the way to school, Lacey meets a cat, a dog and an eagle. They all read her t-shirt, and give her a kiss! Then she meets a moose, who gives her a large wet moose kiss, right up the front of her face and over the top of her head. Lacey is thrilled - maybe this shirt is wonderful, not weird! "This is a story about Lacey, a girl from Stewart, B.C. All the animals in the story are really in Stewart. Not near Stewart, IN Stewart. The day I made up this story the kids could not go out for recess because there were two grizzly bears on the playground. Lacey was in grade one and was wearing a t-shirt that said, "GIVE ME A KISS HUG," says Robert Munsch.

This book is about Lacey and how she has no clean clothes. Her mother then makes he wear an ugly shirt but read more until you notice what Lacey discovers. This is a very enjoyable book and it is very enthusiastic. This is a very kiddish book and so that's why I would recommend this book from ages 4 to 9. The illustrations in this book are very nice and they look very complicated to try to illustrate. I absolutely love this book a lot because it is really fun to read and that's why I think you should borrow this book as soon as possible! @Bookworm5755 of the Teen Review Board of the Hamilton Public Library

Very funny. Completely unrealistic (as all Munsch books are) - yet the characters are so lifelike and lovable!

I give this one huge bonus points for having Mom be a lumberjack but having that be a throwaway point not worth making a big deal about.

My four year old son adores this book!

My 2 year old daughter and 4 year old son sat mesmerized by this book. I would recommend it for all ages. They loved the pictures of her being kissed by all the different animals!
