Description

From the beloved New York Times bestselling author of I Wish You More, Amy Krouse Rosenthal, "a joyous, totally original potpourri of stories, poems, lists, palindromes, visual jokes, and random observations about the universal delights and conundrums of childhood."* Reminiscent of classics like Falling Up from Shel Silverstein, this 80-page black-and-white book is meant for sharing and taps into the delightfully inquisitive world of a child. Amy Krouse Rosenthal said it best: Hello, You! So . . . this book is full of stuff I've always wondered about . . . Like: Did Miss Mary Mack have friends who liked other colors? Could everything important about the world be summarized in a poem that rhymes? How do moms always know when you're about to sneak a cookie? Who hid something under the Tooth Fairy's pillow when she was a little girl? Inside you will find stories, short poems, lists, palindromes, visual treats, and random observations. Some parts are happy, some sad-ish, some silly, some serious, some crunchy, some with a soft center. You can open the book up anywhere and read. So the beginning could be the end, and the end could be the beginning. But I guess the middle is always the middle. . . . P.S. Aren't Paul's drawings the best?! --Amy Krouse Rosenthal *School Library Journal
