Description

Little Champy Goes to School is two things: a wonderful story about the family of famous Lake Champlain "monsters," and a lasting memento to the bridges that have spanned the lake at Crown Point. Illustrations of both bridges appear in color on the covers and in black-and-white within the book's pages.

The story is about Little Champy going to school to learn how to undulate, which is so important for any kind of sea serpent or lake monster. Supported by his mother, Mama Champy; his father, Big Champy; and his grandfather, Old Champy, he attends school far beneath the Lake Champlain Bridge in preparation for the big test of the surface swim.

The teacher is Aunt Champanella, who works hard to teach her students what they'll need to know, especially about undulating.

Author Gordie Little has created a wonderful story, supported by the beautiful artwork of Les Bradford. The result is a book for all children to enjoy, a keepsake in honor of the lost bridge, and an excellent addition to the family library of every North Country family.
