Picture Book Review: Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

Ferris Bueller's Day Off by Bonnie Pang

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off: The Classic Illustrated Storybook (Pop Classics 12)
by Bonnie Pang (Illustrator)

4 out of 5 stars

Ferris pretends to be sick so that he can play hooky from school. His friends, Cameron and Sloane, come along too, and they have a wonderful day seeing the sights in downtown Chicago. They eat at a fancy restaurant, visit a museum, go to a baseball game, and even sing in a parade. But will Mr. Rooney, the school principal, find out what they are doing?

This is such a fun way to revisit this movie! I liked that they condense it to only the basic story in a way that is appropriate for children, leaving out the movie’s problematic scenes and profanity. This is a great way to be able to share this story with kids, since they would be too young to actually watch the film.

The artwork is wonderful! The bright colors really capture the fun and laughter of the movie. I love the cartoony style of the art, and the character designs are spot-on!
