Gerald is careful. Piggie is not. Piggie cannot help smiling. Gerald can. Gerald worries so that Piggie does not have to. Gerald and Piggie are best friends. In There Is a Bird On My Head!, Gerald discovers that there is something worse than a bird on your head – two birds on your head! Can Piggie help her best friend? You’ll delight in the subtle grown-up humour… and how much the kids enjoy this hugely entertaining and laugh inducing story.

The earliest indication that this is not your typical guessing game comes on the endpaper as a robot energetically hatches out of an egg. For each round of guessing, readers are presented with a page of Rex’s oil-and-acrylic illustrations opposite a rhyming quatrain. Adults and kids alike will find themselves laughing out loud at the completely unexpected and delightfully off-the-wall verse conclusions. One of the funniest books for parents and kids. Brilliant!

This is one of the funniest books for parents and kids we’ve found. ‘Z’ is tired of always having to be last when the alphabet family lines up. He is demanding fair and equal treatment! The letters (more or less) agree to go backwards, but it’s not long before P has some ideas of his own. And so does H, for that matter. In fact, it seems as if almost every letter has a different opinion about how the alphabet should be arranged. It’s chaos! This hugely entertaining romp is not your average alphabet book. But be warned… it’s also very, very funny!

In the best tradition of children’s poetry, Bill Grossman has created a riotous collection of verses and rhymes. Each poem is accompanied by a witty and whimsical illustration by celebrated artist Kevin Hawkes. From Kevin I Moses, who has seventeen noses, to Walter Lackwards, whose head is on backwards, these poems are full of hilarious characters who will delight children and adults alike. A very worthy selection for the funniest books for parents and kids.

All of Louis thoughts are very important to him. In fact, his thoughts are so important to him that when he has something to say, his words begin to wiggle, and then they do the jiggle, then his tongue pushes all of his important words up against his teeth and he erupts, or interrupts others. His mouth is a volcano! My Mouth Is A Volcano takes an empathetic approach to the habit of interrupting and teaches children a witty technique to capture their rambunctious thoughts and words for expression at an appropriate time.
