"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
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."
"[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)
"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)
"Not only does this book encourage object recognition, it's crazy fun for your kids."--Perth's Child (Australia)
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."
"It's a solidly funny concept...kids will have a ball with This Is a Ball."
"Kids will get a kick out of this mixed up tale."--Pregnancy & Newborn
