Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
A young girl tries to figure out what her parents are talking about; Mommy said she had a chocolate moose for dinner, and afterward, she toasted Daddy-yikes! Pictured also are the new wing on the house, Daddy playing the piano by ear, the arms race, and car pools. Older kids and adults will find Gwynne's deadpan humor hilarious, while younger readers may learn what those idioms actually mean.

    We picked this book from out local library.
    I remember when I was a kid I read the book The King Who Rained and I loved it. And when I saw this book I was like oh goodness what is going to be said now and taken to be made funny. 
    K's favorite parts are the following: 
    1.) Stories like these drive me up a wall. And this is where the girl is driving a car up the wall. 
    2.) And Daddy says he's going to tell me the story of the tortoise and the hair. Being as the hair is suppose to be a rabbit and not hair like on a person. lol. 

    I really loved how each saying is made to be funny and makes it more enjoyable for the kids when reading it. 
    This book along with The King Who Rained are books that I want to add to my personal library so I can read them to both of my kids time after time. This is a classic book that is perfect for all ages to read and laugh.

    A reviewer

    I discovered this book in our school's library after a particularly difficult morning. It made me laugh then and still gives me a chuckle today. Great for anyone who enjoys 'puns'. The expressions on the girl's face in the book are priceless too.
