Andre dreads Thursdays. Thursday is the day before his mother gets paid at work each week and it's the day when money is tight and spirits are low for Andre and his older brother and sister. It's also the day when he gets his school report and although he anticipates being top of his class, he's sure that instead of the celebrations his mother has promised, it will be another miserable Thursday. There is a solution to the problem as readers of this delightful book will find out. Illustrated throughout in f/cl. Ages 4 - 8 years.
