As usual, I bought for Joan's grandchildren but read it myself first.

This book's format was celebrated as revolutionary and wildly creative back in 2016. Reading it in 2023 is (for me,) like following someone on social media who chain-posts about nothing all day long.

Amy KR was a popular children's book writer and apparently delightful person but my cynical side wonders if her death at a relatively young age propelled Textbook from "mildly interesting experiment," to "fantastic book," status.

When boredom took a firm hold, I considered reading a few "bits," at a time instead of rolling through the book page after page. Then I realized that not a single 'bit,' thus far had struck me as amusing, inspiring, wise, or even universally "human," or relatable. I bailed out when Social Studies ended.

Even allowing for the change in novelty sensibilities, this was a bust for me, although I'm typically a sucker for unconventional bio/memoirs.
