The Universe Ate My Homework, written by David Zeltser and illustrated by Ayesha L. Rubio
Abby hates doing homework. In fact, she’ll do just about anything to get out of it. So when she discovers an amazing scientific recipe for creating a parallel universe where she’ll never have to do homework again, she’s ready to jump right in.
