Winter 2009 Kids' List

“This hilarious read-aloud is a series of riddles that lead the reader to a very obvious answer but then give a completely unexpected, ridiculous answer instead, accompanied by silly illustrations. Older kids will think it's a book for babies, until the surprise ending of the first riddle, after which, they won't stop laughing.”
