If you have a young reader who is still learning to read and is having a really hard time finding the right book, I have some good news for you. The wild and crazy Andy Griffiths who writes the Butt books, has written two early readers. This one contains ten short stories filled with rhyme and hilarity. There are zany drawings filling most of the space-a great relief to most early readers- and then nonsensical rhyme fills the rest. It's just fun. "A big cow here. A fat cow there. Big fat cows are everywhere." Careful....it just might go kapow!

Look inside! This book has a mouse with a house, and a mole in a hole, and a squirmy worm, and a spiky bike. And, of course, it has a big fat cow that goes 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 . . . KAPOW!--from the publisher
