This note “from school” is the bestest, funnest thing I have seen so far this year.
The authorship has yet to be verified, but the parents of Cara, who appears from her picture to be around 5 or 6, seem to have decided (albeit good-naturedly) that it’s a fraud.

The note not only has a line for a signature, which Cara has already completed, but a nifty pink princess stamp.
