2006 Award
The Day Jimmy's Boa Ate the Wash
( Scholastic $14.95 Score: ) This collection might have been subtitled, “Tales out of School.” Steven Kellogg’s illustrations come to life in this lightly animated version of one of the zaniest class trips in children’s books. It’s one of those tall tale stories that grows as the narrator goes on and on. Other stories on the video include “Shrinking Violet,” narrated by Calista Flockhart, and “Will I Have a Friend?” which is much younger than the other stories. DVD bonus stories are “Wings: A Tale of Two Chickens” and the marvelous Canadian film, “The Sweater,” about a boy who receives the wrong sweater through a mail order mix-up and is an outcast on his hockey team. 6 & up.
