This Book Can Read Your Mind
When the page is turned, sure enough, a pink elephant appears! This funny interactive book plays on the idea that when you’re told NOT to think of something, somehow it is all you can think about. What if the scientist tells you not to think of the elephants on unicycles playing the tuba? Or wearing silly underpants?! Or something even ruder than that . . .? As the book continues, and more and more silliness ensues, the scientist is distraught but there is plenty of fun in store for the reader. This is a hilarious book to occupy young children who are cooped up indoors.
"Our 4yo's response to this at story time involves much jumping around in giddy anticipation of the next page turn."

Jacob Grant makes picture books. Absurd and heartfelt picture books. Originally from Ohio, he now lives with his wife and baby boy in a very windy city in Illinois. Day and night he can be found at his home studio, drawing, painting, and writing until something feels story-ish. When he's lucky, some of this mess gets made into books! His previous titles include Bear's Scare (Bloomsbury Children's Books, 2018), Through With The Zoo (Feiwel and Friends, 2017), and Little Bird's Bad Word (Feiwel and Friends, 2016).
