Description

This clever companion to This Is a Ball is the perfect read-aloud for the giggling masses who love Hervé Tullet's Press Here, Lane Smith's It's a Book!, and BJ Novak's The Book With No Pictures.

The Books That Drive Kids CRAZY! series offers parents, teachers, and storytellers a hilarious script for fun reading time together. Book 1, Did You Take the B from My _ook? is missing one very important letter due to one very powerful sneeze! Now, the _eetle wearing _lue _oots is _ouncing on the bed instead of wearing blue boots and bouncing on the bed...and it just gets sillier from there! What is up with this nonsense? Kids will demand to know--and all readers will be howling with laughter all along the way. With strikingly simple text and art, Books That Drive Kids CRAZY! are ideal picks for emergent readers.

Publishers Weekly


"A perfect one to read out loud to the kids."
Red Tricycle


Praise for the Books That Drive Kids CRAZY! Series:
"Funny, clever, deliciously dry...this book encourages kids to think outside the square, and hopefully, somewhere deep in that unlimited subconscious, understand that what we see is all about perception. What a powerful thought."
Kids' Book Review (Australia)


"[The Book with No Pictures, Press Here, and Mix It Up] are international bestsellers and deservedly so, but closer to home we now have a book which is just as delightfully frustrating, clever and nuts."—Children's Book Daily (Australia)
