This post by author, Michael Gerard Bauer, had me rolling on the floor. It was so funny, in fact, that it got me to order his YA book, Don't Call Me Ishmael. Well, that... and the review on The Book Chook's blog.
There is nothing better than a good laugh. Which got me thinking... what picture books crack me up? The truth is, not many. Editors always say they are looking for humor. And there are plenty of PBs that make me smile, or perhaps inwardly chuckle. But very few make me laugh out loud.
Scaredy Squirrel by Melanie Watt is a funny book. The Three Horrid Little Pigs is comical. Froggy Gets Dressed elicits a giggle or two when I read it aloud to my children. But I can't think of a single PB that sends me or my kids into uncontrollable fits of laughter.
What picture books do you find to be laugh-out-loud funny?
