Book or Bell? by Chris Barton - OPTIONAL

Barton, Chris Book or Bell? Illustrated by Ashley Spires.  PICTURE BOOK.  Bloomsbury, 2017.  $17.  9781681197296.

Henry is hooked on his book.  When he decides to stay in instead of going to lunch, disaster happens.  The solution – get Henry’s attention with a bigger, louder bell.  But when that doesn’t work, maybe an even bigger bell is called for?

I like Chris Barton – I like Ashley Spires.  This book, however doesn’t make my heart sing.  Its kind of funny and kind makes sense in its progression, but it just doesn’t quite gel into a hilarious whole.
