When a tiny fish shoots into view wearing a round blue topper (which happens to fit him perfectly), trouble could be following close behind.
You might think a book with no pictures seems boring and serious. Except . . . here's how books work. Everything written on the page has to be said by the person reading it aloud. Even if the words say…. BLORK. Or BLUURF. Even if the words are a preposterous song about eating ants for breakfast, or just a list of astonishingly goofy sounds like BLAGGITY BLAGGITY and GLIBBITY GLOBBITY. Cleverly irreverent and irresistibly silly, The Book with No Pictures is one that kids will beg to hear again and again. (And parents will be happy to oblige.)
Leonardo is terrible at being a monster. He can't seem to frighten anyone. Then he comes up with a plan to find the perfect nervous little boy and scare the tuna salad out of him. Will his plan succeed, or will he come up with a better idea?
Gerald the giraffe longs to dance, but his legs are too skinny and his neck is too long. At the Jungle Dance, the warthogs waltz, the chimps cha-cha, and the lions tango. "Giraffes can't dance," they all jeer when it's Gerald's turn to prance. But with some sound advice from a wise cricket, Gerald starts swaying to his own sweet tune.
"Poor storyline saved by a fantastic performance"
Bear's hat is gone. None of the animals have seen it. He is starting to become despondent, until his memory is sparked by a deer who asks just the right question.
