Description

Stoo Hample's 1961 classic elicits a fresh round of giggles with this irresistible edition featuring new art from the author-illustrator — and the same wonderful retro feel.

I am silly,
You are silly,
All of us are silly,
Willy.

And everything in THE SILLY BOOK is the silly-willy-nilliest! There are songy sills (oops!) — silly songs, silly stories, silly poems, silly secrets, silly things to do, a silly good-night, and even silly nothings. Anyone who reads this book will laugh like anything or else turn into a bathtub. First published more than forty years ago — when it became an uproariously silly success — THE SILLY BOOK has returned to cause a new generation of children to giggle like gigglecopters (giggle giggle giggle), roll on the floor (roll roll roll), and cheer, "Boodleheimer, Boodleheimer" (CLAP! CLAP! CLAP!).
