Title: Don’t Play with Your Food
Well the story starts out with a monster who is planning to eat all the adorable bunnies playing about. However, those bunnies have other plans. First they invite him to bake cupcakes, and monster is too full to eat the bunnies. The next day they all go swimming together, (of course you can’t eat right before you swim), and by time their frolicking is over, monster is too tired to eat the bunnies. I think you are getting the jist of the book. However, as fun as it is, the ending is the most brilliant and humorous part of the story. I don’t want to give it away and spoil all the fun.
Bob Shea is just a clever, clever man. I actually think his books are getting better every year. He understands kids and he understands funny, and the combination is wickedly giggly inducing.
While the book is suited for preschoolers, I actually think kids around five and up will be the ones who understand some of the more clever gags in this story.
You can’t play with your food … but you can play with your friends.
