What young child hasn’t imagined, even for a few seconds, using an entire container of glue on an art creation? In this laugh-aloud tale, Matty, who loves working with glue, does exactly this on his art class project.

Despite his teacher’s repeated warnings, Matty pours all of the glue from the classroom containers onto his art. Mixed with lots of sequins and googly eyes, the sticky lake looks quite impressive … but it’s not impressive enough for Matty. Unable to resist, he belly flops onto the table and rolls around, letting the glue and everything else cover him.

When he tries to get up from the table, Matty discovers, of course, that he’s stuck in the gloopy mess. All he can do is lift his head from the table, wave his hands and wiggle his feet. Worse, there’s only half an hour until school ends for the day.

While his teacher hyperventilates into a paper bag, some of his classmates try to lasso Matty from the mess. They try to pry him loose, using a toy tow truck. They attempt to blot up the glue. Nothing works. Matty is still stuck.

Summoned from his office, the principal doesn’t know what to do. He puts a sticky note on Matty and leaves the room.

Even the school nurse can’t come up with a solution.

In the end, it’s Matty himself who comes up with a plan - one which results in a true “work of art”!

Young listeners will be “glued” to this hilarious, outrageous story, reminiscent of the tales written by children’s author Robert Munsch. It would be enjoyed as a read-aloud in an elementary school class.
