Driven by a particularly artful use of page turns, this makes compelling reading. Have your credit card ready.
Jokes and interactive fun are the point here ... Give this to Mo Willems’ legions of Pigeon fans.
Foxword’s clever sales techniques make this book funny to the hilt.

This is another great book from Melanie Watt, author of the SCAREDY SQUIRREL and CHESTER series. Welcome to the world of sales and a humerous look at what a salesman will do to make a sell. Melanie Watt's illustrations are amusing and keep the reader engaged right up to the shocking end! Kids will enjoy this book but parents just might appreciate the full extent of Melanie Watt's humor. A must have for any picture book enthusiast!

"Have I Got a Book for You!", by Melanie Watt, is a hilarious story about a fox who could sell an icebox to a penquin. Mr. Al Foxword could also sell an umbrella to a fish and a vacuum cleaner to a mole.
In this book, Al is trying to sell us a book. He is speaking directly to the reader and he is using every sales pitch known to man. Al could easily get a job on a late night infomercial program. He has an answer for every objection.
When I was a school librarian, I was always trying to "sell" my students on books. This book is perfect for sharing aloud with students. Kids will be laughing their socks off.
The story has a surprise ending that will put a smile on the face of your most serious child. I LOVE this book! Young children will find the book funny and entertaining. Older students will recognize the salesmanship techniques that Mr. Foxword is using. This book is a great example of persuasive writing. Get this book today...you will be glad you did!
