Summary / Annotation
Surprisingly Dry Humor; I Loved It! submitted by Meginator on June 30, 2019, 2:05pm This book had me laughing out loud, though the finer points of its humor may be lost on its youngest readers. I was particularly fond of the scientific montage scene and the final gag, though I think the creators should have chosen a different phonetic representation of the llama’s speech (the use of “dat” made me think the llama was saying “that”, which doesn’t seem to be the case upon further examination). Heather Fox’s exaggerated visual style builds on the story’s fundamentally silly premise and lends itself well to the somewhat dry sense of humor the drives the story. Younger readers will find plenty to love here, but this one is likely to be a hit with the adults as well.
funnnnny submitted by manz on July 24, 2019, 1:54pm read if you want to laugh at a cute book.
Hilarious! submitted by missdehlia on August 12, 2019, 1:14pm As the person reading books to my child, I love the ones with more complex humor so I don't get bored- and this book is hilariously absurd!
