Weasels

My boys are tough customers these days.  Their book bar is set so high it's difficult to find anything that meets their approval.  They are in full-on Calvin and Hobbes mode, so if anything has a shot at breaking them away—it had better be funny.

Today I found a winner.



Weasels by Elys Dolan.

At first glance I knew it had great potential to catapult itself over their ridiculously-high bar.
It's about weasels on a quest for world domination.  How could it go wrong?


They smirked.  They laughed.   They pulled the book closer to investigate the illustrations.


And I celebrated my victory.
We wage weird wars around here.

  1. How old are your boys? Mine are 2 and almost 4, and it's been harder for me to get them excited about any books I bring home from the library lately, too. I'd love any other suggestions you may have!
