Mo and Jo Don't Stink!
Mo and Jo, aka the Boulder Brothers, join JUMP-INTO-CHAPTERS with a series of pre-hysterical escapades. In the first chapter, Me Stink?, something’s smelly! Is it Jo? Is it Mo? Is it both? Though kids will know who’s the real odor-offender, they’ll have fun watching the caveboys try to figure out the source of the stench.
Hide and Peek, Chapter 2, has Jo teaching Mo how to play his favorite game. But does Mo really not understand the rules? Or is he a peek-and-cheater? And who will have the best ideas for warming up in Me Cold!? Will a prehistoric beastie mind when they try to borrow some fur?
Though Mo and Jo both speak caveman-ese, educators can be assured that the accompanying narration will offer kids a correct rendition of grammar and sentence structure.
But don’t be surprised to hear Boulder Brothers’ fans declare, “Me want more MO AND JO!”

This is a fun and engaging book for new readers! It's funny and silly. The reader can get pleasure out of knowing more than the characters do. The word count is low and there are primarily easy-to-sound out words, which are both appealing to early readers. However, there are three chapters, so the child can feel the sense of accomplishment in reading a longer books. The illustrations are adorable and in color throughout. Also because there is both narration and word bubble dialogue, a new reader can read one section and have an adult reader the other section. My kids love this book! Can't wait to see the next one!
This is probably going to be one you either hate or love as it's rather like Ook & Gluk by Dav Pilkey in that there is toilet humour and bad grammar ala caveman-speak. I thought it was adorable and know my sons would have loved it when they were around six or so. While the sentences read like "Dick and Jane", the three little chapters are silly and the artwork is cute. Each two-page spread is full-colour with one or two short narrative sentences and comic speech bubbles. This would be most appropriate for a first reader in the tradition of BOB books.
