NOT a Children's Book -- But Still Wonderfully Funny!
I know Brian P. Cleary's work mostly as a children's author. Well - this is NOT a children's book! It IS, however, a delightful surprise to this reader! I'd heard Brian P. Cleary giving a keynote address at a literacy conference, so I knew that he had a fully "grown-up" sense of humor, but I did not know he had written a book for grown-ups! It is 100 funny bits of wisdom such as: "There's no such thing as free kittens," and "When a kid says, 'smell my hand' it almost never smells like cinnamon." Some are serious, but wonderfully insightful, others are just downright funny. I'd been a fan of his children's books for years, so I bought this thinking it was a children's book. It's not, but it IS a funny collection of everyday pearls of wisdom.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
