Description

An unusual school bus picks him up, and away he goes. He notices, however, that things are a bit odd at school, eerie and peculiar. They study stars and owls and werewolf howls.

Around 4 a. m. Eddie begins to feel tired! When he asks when morning will come,  the teacher sends the new kids to the office. When the principal says he'll keep them there forever, Eddie has had enough! He leads them down the stairs as they flee, with teachers in close pursuit. As they close in, Eddie calls out a loud, cheery “Good morning”—and stops his pursuers flat. Eddie is off. He runs the whole way home and straight to bed!
