"You know what?"
"Chicken butt "
The classic schoolyard joke has been recast as an irreverent picture book, with call-and-response parts for parent and child. The word repetition in Erica S. Perl's text, and wonderfully comic illustrations by beloved artist Henry Cole, make this a particularly inviting book for new readers, as does the opportunity to trick a parent or other adult into participating in a very silly joke. The humor builds to a surprising and satisfying conclusion. Warning: Kids will want to read this one over and over and over again An unhinged piece of slap-happy rhymingrocket-propelled artworkthe romp is a powerful piece of cacophony, more frenetic by the moment.
