On Account of the Gum
By Adam Rex
Reading Level: 1st - 3rd
Don’t go to bed while chewing gum! Otherwise you could wake up with the gum stuck in your hair!
That’s exactly what happens in this book. A girl wakes up on school picture day to find last night’s gum stuck in her hair. Dad was going to cut the gum out, but the scissors got stuck in the girl’s hair as well. A website recommended using two sticks of butter to get the gum out, but now the sticks of butter are stuck. Before long, the poor girl has grass, bacon, noodles, a rabbit, a cat, and all kinds of things stuck to her hair.
There has to be a way to get gum out of hair!
