For any kid who has heard "Get outside and play," and for any parent who has said it.
"I can't believe Mom made me stop my video game to get some fresh air. Stupid outside. "
"At least the guys are here. Their moms made them come outside, too. "
"That shouldn't be too hard. Maybe I'll finally get lucky. It'll fall any second."
- Like O'Malley's acclaimed "Straight to the Pole," this book is pithy and funny, perfect for readers of all levels and ages.
- The topic playing video games versus playing outdoors is explored in a way that is satisfying to both parents and children.
- Once again, O'Malley showcases his knack for relating to modern kids, and his new illustration style will win over more readers to his fan club.
- With an intuitive understanding of young boys' psyches, O'Malley has created an ideal book for dads and sons to enjoy together.
