"...debut illustrator Retz’s artwork is created digitally, but there’s a sculptural quality to it that almost suggests he could be using glue as a medium, too.... First-time author LeFebvre presents a rowdy tale about the disruptive forms that creativity can take." —Publishers Weekly

He ignores the teacher's warning regarding the proper use of the glue. She tells the kids to glue raindrops, not puddles, but Matty whose mind is already in glue-overdrive seeks out the fullest bottle he can find and starts pouring it on...er...out! He squeezes out a lake of the stuff and then adds sequins, sparklers and other countless add-ons. Matty checks out his art project and decides to add on one more thing.....himself! He is just what is needed to make his masterpiece perfect! He's the final touch. He does run into a bit of problem when he discovers he may be a permanent fixture. He cannot remove himself from his work of art. He is totally stuck, unable to peel himself away. The teacher, (who is hyperventilating by now), his classmates, the school nurse and even the school principal are unable to detach him ... he is a 3-D phenomenon rising right out of his creation. Dad arrives and saves the day. Without scolding or getting angry dad surprises everyone with his response to the dilemma.
The illustrations are absolutely perfect. They are colourful, vibrant, expressive and full of action. This hilarious book will have you in stitches and eager to read it again and again. This is Lefebvre's debut novel and I hope by he now is well into the writing of his second. You will love this book for sure and have your kids asking, "Is there any glue in our house?"
