One day a tiny insect, no bigger than a freckle, climbs into Miss Calypso's classroom. Nobody notices until ...Polly scritches, Joshua scratches and soon the whole class is scritching and scratching. An itchingly good text and hilarious illustrations make this book a must for anyone who has ever had a nit.
