Jean-Paul is an eleven-year-old boy who lives in Paris. His best friend is a girl named Pascale. Poor Jean-Paul has one big problem. He does not like school. He does not like to study. He does not like to do homework. Besides, his teachers are really strange. Fortunately, Jean-Paul has a lot of good ideas. He thinks of many fun and exciting things to do rather than going to school. His good ideas include visiting a soccer stadium and an art museum with Pascale. Jean-Paul also thinks about eating delicious pastries at a bakery and rowing a boat in a park. Jean-Paul thinks these are good ideas. In fact, he thinks they are great ideas. Are they really?
