Poor Delia, nothing ever happens to her. Her life is so dull, dull, dull. But perhaps if Delia decided to look up or turn around, she'd see...the elephants marching through her house...the pirate sitting behind her on the school bus...or even the submarine that rises to the surface right after she leaves the pool! If Delia ever paid attention, she'd realize her life is quite exciting after all!
Delightful artwork filling the pages with the unexpected will have every child giggling and put a smile on the face of every adult who has heard that refrain... I'm BORED!
"Myer integrates his text done in various fonts, sizes, and colors with his watercolor illustrations, making the words feel as though they are flowing into the pictures.... Children will love that they can see what Delia can't and will feel they've been let in on a secret." -- School Library Journal
"The droll, first-person point of view carries the sarcastic, bored tone to its humorous extreme. The message could not be clearer: Look up and see the interesting world around you! This lesson is delivered in such a winning, funny package that it hardly seems like a lesson at all." -- Kirkus
