Books That Drive Kids CRAZY!
By

Rating
The Books That Drive Kids CRAZY! series capitalizes on the trend of interactive picture books--it's all about giving parents, teachers, and storytellers a script for fun reading time together. Book 2, This Is a Ball, is a boldly absurd spin-off of concept books, and an audaciously contrarian invitation for readers to practice deadpan delivery: after all, the picture on the cover clearly shows a cube, not a ball. The page that declares a princess is flying a kite at the beach shows an alien holding a balloon in a city...and on and on. What is WRONG with this silly book? Kids will demand to know--and all readers will be howling with laughter all along the way. With strikingly simple text and art, Books That Drive Kids CRAZY! are perfect picks for emergent readers. Future books in the series, releasing two per year, have equally funny-yet frustrating premises: Did You Take the B from My _ook? and Wait Wait WAIT!

Reviews

"Kids will get a kick out of this mixed up tale."--Pregnancy & Newborn "It's a solidly funny concept...kids will have a ball with This Is a Ball." --BCCB Praise for Did You Take the B from My _ook? "It's a winning bit of interactive silliness that offers insight into the way small changes can have big results where words are concerned." --Publishers Weekly "Not only does this book encourage object recognition, it's crazy fun for your kids."--Perth's Child (Australia) "Kids will fall into fits of giggles as you try to tell them a car is a bike, and they'll only stop laughing long enough to correct you or beg to hear it all again."--Newcastle Herald (Australia) "[The Book with No Pictures, Press Here, and Mix It Up] are international bestsellers and deservedly so, but closer to home we now have a book which is just as delightfully frustrating, clever and nuts."--Children's Book Daily (Australia) "Funny, clever, deliciously dry...this book encourages kids to think outside the square, and hopefully, somewhere deep in that unlimited subconscious, understand that what we see is all about perception. What a powerful thought."--Kids' Book Review (Australia) Praise for Books That Drive Kids CRAZY!: This Is a Ball: "A string of narratorial mistakes...gives children a chance to gleefully correct the adult reading it aloud. ...Another metafictive storytime crowd-pleaser." --Kirkus Reviews -Funny, clever, deliciously dry...this book encourages kids to think outside the square, and hopefully, somewhere deep in that unlimited subconscious, understand that what we see is all about perception. What a powerful thought.---Kids' Book Review (Australia) Praise for the Books That Drive Kids Crazy Series: "Funny, clever, deliciously dry...this book encourages kids to think outside the square, and hopefully, somewhere deep in that unlimited subconscious, understand that what we see is all about perception.
