BB-8 on the Run
I love the message of the book, even though it is extremely didactic, and the humor and the pictures are wonderful.
A hilarious twist on a classic bedtime story: When a boy who routinely refuses to go to bed gets a talkative stuffed animal, the tables are turned!
While walking into my living room one morning, cup of coffee in hand, I saw that my pug dog Sam had thrown up all over the rug. Sam, you see, loved to eat things he shouldn’t eat, and then throw them up in as many hidden little places around the house as he could, like some kind of awful aberration of the Easter Bunny. I embarrassed myself at the circulation desk reading it because I kept barking out laughter. The illustrations are fantastic (same guy who illustrated "This Moose Belongs to Me", another one of my faves) and the text is spot on.
These memorable personalities will leave readers glancing apprehensively at their own crayon boxes.” –Publishers Weekly, starred review The earnest gravity of the fighters’ quests paired with the mundane setting and melodramatic tone are perfectly balanced to produce a brand of purely absurd, sidesplitting humor that kids will gobble up.”One day Duncan pulls out his well-used crayon box, and instead of his faithful friends, he finds a pile of letters they've written to him, detailing their complaints and other observations. Super creative and entertaining, Zach and I spent time today recalling some of the letters and laughing anew.
