This Book Will Not Be Fun by Cirocco Dunlap -- ESSENTIAL

Dunlap, Cirocco This Book Will Not Be Fun, illustrated by Olivier Tallec. PICTURE BOOK. Random House, 2017. $17.99. Content: G.

An uppity mouse is convinced that nothing interesting will happen in this particular book. Except...there is a flying whale. And what's this? A glow-in-the-dark worm that does kung fu? How strange... and rather fun. And, wow, what's that on the next page?

This Book Will Not Be Fun is most definitely a fun book. The illustrations are hilarious, and many children will enjoy the journey as this hard-to-impress mouse ends up enjoying the book after all. It's kid-approved, too: my seven-year-old, her friends, and I all found this one ESSENTIAL.
