The Wonder Book (Hardcover)
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:
So . . . this book is full of stuff I've always wondered about . . .
- 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
