Overview

Misery is taking a bite of too-hot pizza when the cheese is still bubbly and trying to juggle it with your tongue while reaching for a sip of cold water.

Misery is having to explain to the doctor how the jelly bean got stuck up your nose.

These and numerous other "miseries" fill this funny book that kids and grown-ups alike are sure to relate to. Jennifer Rapp's art is so deliciously grumpy that it just can't help but elicit a grin. A great gift that will inspire givers and receivers to share their own little miseries, and best of all, change frowns into smiles.

Various children experience the often funny little miseries and challenges that a day can bring.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-4-Hochhauser explores the various manifestations of misery in a child's day. Each page lists a complaint, such as, "Misery is when your brother shows you his chewed food," and "Misery is when your splinter won't come out and your mom has to tweeze and squeeze it." However, some of the examples, "Misery is finding out your mom is pregnant," and "Misery is when you have to wear a hat after you requested `just a little trim,'" seem odd and less child-focused. Rapp's stylized cartoons are more appealing for older audiences. This is not an essential or particularly original purchase. Snoopy did it long ago.-Kelley Rae Unger, Peabody Institute, MA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
