We live in a culture where people prefer pictures over words. Even small children are immersed in the media and deluged by visual images coming at them from all directions. So you might think you could never interest your child or grandchild in a book that has absolutely no pictures.

Think again. As a popular YouTube video of the author reading the book at a school proves (see Related Content at right), kids can really get into this one. Why, because there's a rule that anyone reading the book has to say it all, including some very funny words and phrases.

This children's book is a real lark and will leave you all laughing together. When was the last time you truly gave into silliness with children? Pick up this book and let it take you on a fun-filled journey.
