Summary

Four years of hilarious kids’ quotes from the ESL classroom in South Korea.

When Jenny Maxwell first moved to South Korea on a whim to become an English teacher little did she know she’d end up teaching some of the most amusing, witty kids she’d ever met.

Following on from the success of Quote Friday – a round up of the best quotes of the week from her elementary school classroom - comes the full and unabridged book featuring some never before read additions from students, family and, of course, The Canadian One.

Packed full of hysterical quotes such as:

Having just read the sentence: ‘Baby wallabies are born without fur.’
Me: “What are baby wallabies born without?”
Kid: “Hope.”

Me: “What’s a baby chicken called?”
Kid: “An egg fry.”

Me: “What’s your favorite book?”
Kid: “Harry Potter.”
Me: “What’s the story?”
Kid: “It has no story.”

Me: “What are eyebrows?”
Kid: “People’s eye fur.”

Me: “What’s a ‘tail’?”
Kid: “A dog’s antenna.”

Me: "When do we find out who wins this election in America? Is it like the same day or is it weeks later like on The X Factor?"
The Canadian One: "The US election is NOT like The X Factor."

Watch Out For The Hedgehog is the must-read book for educators, travellers, ESL teachers and anyone who’s ever been curious about what it’s like to teach English in a foreign country.
