Retelling: This book gives you a rhyming riddle that makes you want to shout out the next word... but the next word is never what you expect it will be.Thoughts and Feelings: I read this book aloud to my boyfriend and we laughed the whole way through. It's awesome that an author can force us to think fill in the blank with a single agreed upon word, and equally awesome that the author has the power to upset our expectations.

Since I read this book to 32 classes, 650 kids, I think it should count in my total reads for the year. Though it only has 32 pages. And even though every page has only twenty words on it. But it is a deep book. So it should count. No, it¿s not really deep. But clever. Yes, I think we can agree that it is quite clever. Over the heads of most of my youngest library visitors. But, hey, they got some of it. Enough that it is now on the top 10 Most Checked Out Books list. And that¿s what really makes it count.

This was a cute rhyming picture book with no real plot; it's set up as a series of riddles - the answers SEEM obvious, but you have to "guess again!" because it ends up being not quite what you thought. One riddle that seems to be about a bunny - "His floppy ears are long and funny," - ends up being about the unnamed narrator's Grandpa Ned ... and so on and so forth. Seems like it'd be a very cute read aloud with kids guessing the very obvious answers and then laughing when the surprise answer is revealed. The illustrations are really lovely and convey the intended humor quite well - I especially liked the picture of a giant viking cowering with a small piece of cheese. This would be a good, quick storytime title.

Mac Barnett and Adam Rex are the dynamic duo when it comes to picture books (and chapter books, for that matter.) Part of my job is reading stories to kids and this book ALWAYS grabs their attention and has them listening intently - and their parents. Actually, I get bigger laughs from the moms and dads when I read it. "Guess Again" is a great play on some of the more simple picture books for little kids that have been around for ages and the flaps and folds to lift and peek through are a great addition to an overall superb book that would make a great gift - after you get it for your own little listeners, of course!
