it's a book

The kids and I gave this book to Dan for Father's Day.

I saw it somewhere online and knew I had to have it. I couldn't just buy it for myself though. That would be selfish.

So I bought it and saved it until I could give it to Dan. I knew he'd share.

If I didn't think it would be dishonest to take a picture of each page for you I would.

Here's the gist. A monkey is teaching a computer-loving jackass what a book is. I read it to my neighbor and she laughed her booty off. It's got some funny stuff.

I really want to show you the last page because it's the best part. I won't ruin it for you though. You'll have to get your own copy (or just come over and Dan will share).

Have you seen this book?

It's one of my favorites. Notice that the illustrator is the author of It's A Book. Maybe that's why I like it so much. (He also illustrated this book, another of my favorites.)

Here's the aftermath of some huffing and puffing by the big bad wolf (whose real name is Alexander T. Wolf, in case you didn't know).

I love it.

Twig utensils and a pig bum.

So there you go.

A few good books for your weekend reading enjoyment (if you're into reading picture books on the weekend).

If you're not, I can't help you.

I'm really glad you mentioned these, I've been wanting to expand Ev's sad little library but don't want to waste money on lame books ;) I think those all sound great!
