What a great book! Smart and funny. Both my 7 year old son and I laughed out loud reading this one, but it's not just one of those goofy "boy" books about boogers and butts. It is well written and a joy to read out loud. I loved how Amato sneaked in a line or two that almost bordered on poetic. Can't wait to read the rest of the books.
