Children's LiteratureAs the author notes, we love to recognize accomplishments in this country, but rarely do we recognize "flubs." You know, the events best forgotten. This 64-page book does just that--recalls the absurd, the "what were they thinking?" events. With chapter titles such as "Far Out Fads," "A Whole Lotta Hoaxes," "The Extreme Sports Scene," and "Strange Museums," the author briefly and humorously recounts the bizarre but true. Wacky, colorful cartoonlike illustrations add to the craziness. Perfect for the kid who needs encouragement to read, the book provides brief vignettes on weird events sure to capture the imagination. Even grownups will be amused. An index is included. 2005, Maple Tree Press, Ages 8 to 10.
