You know what?What?Chicken butt! The classic schoolyard joke has been recast as an irreverent picture book, with call-and-response parts for parent and child.
The word repetition in Erica S. Perl's text, and wonderfully comic illustrations by beloved artist Henry Cole, make this a particularly inviting book for new readers, as does the opportunity to "trick" a parent or other adult into participating in a very silly joke.
The humor builds to a surprising and satisfying conclusion.
Warning: Kids will want to read this one over and over and over again! "An unhinged piece of slap-happy rhyming...rocket-propelled artwork...the romp is a powerful piece of cacophony, more frenetic by the moment."-Kirkus Reviews
