MONTREAL, OCTOBER 9, 2012 – Building on her success last year after the release of her first book, Misfit Academy: When Kids Rule the School, English Montreal School Board Special Education Technician Stephanie Gliksman has released her second book entitled Squished Bananas and Other Homework Battles.

Geared for students in Cycle 1 and Cycle 2, Gliksman’s new book features Jimmy Bee, a Grade 3 student who will do anything and everything, from looking for bugs and brushing his dog’s teeth to avoid doing his homework. Fortunately, Jimmy Bee’s mother has a few tricks up her sleeve to ensure her son gets his work done.
If you would like Stephanie Gliksman to visit your classroom and read Squished Bananas and Other Homework Battles to your Cycle 1 or Cycle 2 students, please contact her at: Following the reading, Stephanie engages in a fun, educational and very interactive activity with the students.

Both books in the Misfit Academy series: Squished Bananas and Other Homework Battles and When Kids Rule the School, are available in paperback at local bookstores including Jack and Jill Shop (5330 Queen Mary Road) and KidLink Books & Toys (5603 Monkland) as well as on in both e-book and print editions.
