review 1: I've always been a fan of Michael Ian Black and so I was pleased when I stumbled across his book at the library. It was such a fun read. Black is a fantastic writer. Had me laughing (accidental quoting of Arnold in 'Kindergarten Cop') and even crying (the chapter about Mattie). ...

review 1: I have a dry sense of humor so this was right up my alley. BORED. I know I said it all the time when I was a kid. I know I said it yesterday. But as this little digital girl proves there is no reason anyone should ever be bored. Unless you are a potato. Or a flamingo. I love th...

review 1: eh.started out awful and pretty boring. after a while, there were a few gems, but i can't tell if it's because he lulled me into expecting less, so when it was funny, it was unexpected and welcome.the type of writing that goes on and on about a ridiculous topic, with a "zinger" ...
Qu' Aburrido! (2014)

review 1: Published in 2012 this is not the only children's picture book of this title or this subject. It's as common as diapers on a toddler. "I'm bored!" is that heavily sighed announcement which every child has said and every parent has endured. My usual answer is to give them someth...

review 1: Once again, I look at the other reviews and think, "lighten up".Okay, so this is a book about butts. Chicken butts, bear butts, deer derrieres, etc. A clever bear assembles a rather peculiar totem pole to help him reach a high honeycomb. Each animal has no choice but to stare ...

review 1: Usually I review picture books from my kids' perspectives, because of course they are the target audience. But I read a TON of picture books, at least 30 of them every single week, and sometimes my tastes and the kids' tastes clash a bit.I assume this is why so many picture books...

review 1: Great read-aloud that was a big hit with the 2nd grade class that I read it to. The premise is that a monkey tells you that he can read your mind. He tells you that he's thinking of a purple kangaroo, and that makes you think of it! And of course, the fact that the purple kangaro...

review 1: Though still pretty funny, this has been my least favorite of M.I.B.'s children's books so far. There's plenty of silliness, the character names are hilarious, and who doesn't like a book with a mischievous chinchilla!? But, this one is difficult to read aloud, as it's mostly jus...
