Looking for some cutting-edge reads? Some of the funniest, most irreverent and daring titles the library has can be found in our picture book section. The medium, both short and visual, allows authors and illustrators to take a nutty idea, add great artwork, and build a book that makes reading both fun and funny.
When Floyd's toy kite encounters a tree, it gets terribly, hopelessly Stuck. Floyd is not one to give up on his prized possession, so he takes off his shoe and hurls it at the kite...and that gets stuck, too.
Michael K. already has a few strikes against him. He's a new kid at a new school in a new town, but did he really have to get stuck sitting next to the two weirdest kids in the classroom? The girl, Jennifer, is halfway through eating her pencil when the boy, Bob, tells Michael that the two of them aren't human. They are Spaceheadz.
Bob, Jennifer, and the hamster, Major Fluffy, are on an intergalatic mission to save Earth. They must do this by recruiting 3.14 million Earthlings as Spaceheadz, and they think Michael K. is the person to help them get the job done.
