Publisher's Weekly Review

In It's Not My Fault!, Nancy Carlson takes a chestnut of a premise-(succinctly summed up in the title) to offer a comic parable on personal accountability. George the rabbit (from Harriet and George's Christmas Treat) is called to the principal's office, he assumes it's the latest in a cascade of woes which have descended on his purportedly blameless head since the alarm clock failed to wake up him up for school that morning. The illustrations, however, inform readers that George had a part in the proceedings. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
