To reboot our journey down picture book lane, I'd like to focus on humorous stories. Laugh-out-loud funny books. Tales that literally had my boys guffawing. They begged for these books to be re-read and they got funnier every time.
I have a nine-book high pile of rib-ticklers, so this post will be in many parts. Enjoy!
1. STUCK by Oliver Jeffers
|Oliver Jeffers is a master storyteller. He took a common expression and built a literal tale around it. Every page is more outrageous than the last and there are surprises at every turn.|

Have you guys read The Book With No Pictures? It's one of E's. Faves, but be forewarned, your kids will add "Boo boo butt" into their vocabularies. :-p But it's worth it! :-)ReplyDelete
Oh yes. We've been there! Without a picture on the cover, it gets overlooked on the bookshelf a lot. But when it is found... hysterical laughter ensues :)ReplyDelete
