Spencer has too many toys! His father trips over them, his mother falls over them, and the house is overflowing with junk. Now its time to give some of the mountain of goodies away, but Spencer finds it hard. In the end, he fills a box, but decides the one toy he can't part with is the box!
Grownupish grownup . . .
What in the world does that mean?!
Babysitting should be pretty straightforward: if you give the child a chocolate soda, he’ll do his homework. Unfortunately for Mr. Nogginbody, he follows those steps in that order. When the child refuses to study and begins jumping on the couch, Mr. N. jumps up after him, determined to put a stop to the shenanigans. But he quickly discovers just how much fun being a kid can be.
There’s a fine line between childish and grownupish, as readers will learn in this playful and brilliantly accomplished new picture book from Caldecott Honor–winning creator David Shannon.
This book is guaranteed to make you laugh--and itch! From the opening picture of a happy, oversized louse appearing with his suitcases, you know these bugs are determined to stay, and Mom is about to go nuts!
Nobody talks about them, but they are everywhere. (Some estimate 20 million children a year host them.) Oh the shame and humiliation of having bugs in your hair! But if you go to school, or have play dates, chances are good you might meet them someday. Maybe you already have! Lucky for you, the unwelcome bugs in this story are so funny you will be laughing aloud--even when Mom attacks them with battle-tested anti-lice weapons.
Shannon peppers his hilarious scenes with fun, "nitpicking" facts about these "lousy" critters and pokes fun at common denial: "It's probably ash from that volcano in Pogo Pogo."
Soon the party's over--Bye bye, Little Nasties! Once again Shannon has created a fresh, highly entertaining read-aloud classic that begs to be read again and again.
Beloved picture book creator David Shannon introduces a new character in a satisfyingly silly and subversive take on a familiar parable.
If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.
Meet Mr. Nogginbody.
Armed with his new hammer
he fixes his floor
then the wall
and the picture on the wall
and the shower
and the stop sign at the end of the street. . .
What else will Mr. Nogginbody “fix”?
Celebrated author David Shannon’s comically misguided new character gets carried away by success, and kids will laugh out loud at the consequences.
