Unwrapping some fun illustrations for you

Repeated text after each illustration is a hearty, and LOUD .... NO WAY!
Kid's will love to get involved and shout those words out each and every time! 

Unwrapping the book

Kids will delight in the sillyness and absurdity of this board book.  

"Have you ever seen a carrot taking a bath?"
"Poop wearing glasses?"
"A fork driving a car?'
"A fly that's talking on the phone?" ...  just to name a few. 

The illustrations are colourful, full of playfulness and fun.  The best part is the repetitive phrase that invites kids to respond to the ludicrously ridiculous visuals.  "NO WAY!"  The celebrated author/ illustrator has created a book that kids will love to read again and again just for the pure joy of it.  I highly recommend this book for kids (and adults) too. It is guaranteed to put a smile on your face and make your heart happy.  Everyone can use a dose of sillies in their lives right?
