Chicken Cheeks

Every once and a while I like to feature my son Nolan's pick of the month.  He's four and he is currently in love with Michael Ian Black's book, Chicken Cheeks .  Basically it's a book full of animal butts.  But --somehow-- it mysteriously transcends that fact.

Tagline:  "This is a story with a beginning, 
a middle, and a whole lot of ends."

I hate to admit, but even I, like this one.

With nothing but pairings like "Penguin Patootie" and "Polar Bear Derriere" (and funny illustrations), Chicken Cheeks amazingly manages to tell a humorous story.  I was impressed that seventeen slang terms for buttocks were capable of creating a plot.

You might have to see it to believe it.  I dare you to throw it into your library bag. And, while you're hovering in the B's, you might as well do yourself a favor and scoop up anything else by Michael Ian Black.  We've been on a kick lately.  Two other very worthy, giggle inducing reads: The Purple Kangaroo and A Pig Parade Is a Terrible Idea .  Sometimes a very non-serious book is just the thing to cap the day.
