Overview

"Have you ever done something and then thought, "Uh-oh, that was a bad idea"? We thought so. How about the time you asked your best friend to give you a haircut?

THE BOOK OF BAD IDEAS!

"Laura Huliska-Beith grew up in Omaha, Nebraska, the oldest of five brothers and sisters. She credits her siblings as the inspiration behind many of the bad ideas in this book, as well as a few cebsored stunts such as "Jumping off the roof with a homemade parachute" and "Making your sister dance with a broken toe." She now lives in Kansas City, Missouri, with her husband, Jeff (also an inspiration!), and her dogs, George (who was kicked out of obedience school) and Roxy."

"Bad Idea #462 -- Creating your very own intergalactic communication device...with parts from your dada's new stereo." This is just one of the many bad ideas featured in this colorful and hilarious book from author-illustrator Laura Huliska-Beith. Inspired by her childhood (with four brothers and sisters), Beith has collected some of the most familiar and outrageous good ideas that have gone bad. After a sweet introduction which leads into the bad ideas, the reader is treated to fantastic illustrations of acrylic, collage paper, and fabric that burst with personality. Vibrant colors and many patterns fill the pages that depict the horribly bad ideas. The pictures have an abstract quality to them that makes the book modern and fun. Details such as plaid houses and cars and handwritten text add to the charm.
