Bedtime Story: This Book Will Not be Fun by Cirocco Dunlap

Read for: Children's Book Challenge

Synopsis: "In which a persnickety mouse assures readers that they will not enjoy the book, while trying to distract from the fantastical antics of a word-eating flying whale, a funky break-dancing glow worm, and others."

My Review: Munchkin, being a typical boy about preschool/kindergarten age loves snarky and funny books. I figured this would be great, along the lines of Book with No Pictures. Unfortunately, this one fell a little flat, maybe it will improve with addition re-reads but it just doesn't hold up to what I expected. Munchkin didn't laugh even once! The narrator is a mouse who is a little grumpy but things start happening in the background (and under the cover of darkness) so it really isn't at the forefront. I think it may work better for older kids who would make the connection with the drab character and lines with the chaos in the background but it just didn't work for us.

My Rating: So sad that the title proved to be true for this one, we were hoping for another laugh out loud book.  We give it a rating of One Paw.

Good Night! Sweet Dreams!
