This Is a Serious Book by Jodie Parachini, Daniel Rieley @HarperChildrens #BookReview

This is a very serious book. Nothing silly is allowed. There are no funny faces, no clowns, and definitely no shenanigans. A serious book is always respectful, and, of course, is always in black and white. But wait! Who’s this? Zebra might be black and white, but he is NOT serious. And he and his friends are ruining the book with their antics, parades, and parties!

This funny and irreverent book that pits its narrator against its characters in a hilarious way invites reader participation and encourages kids to think about writing their own books and stories—just as donkey does here in the end. A joyful page-turner of a book that celebrates writing and creativity and will appeal to fans of The Book With No Pictures.

Jodie Parachini grew up in Concord, Massachusetts, and studied at both Trinity College and Georgetown University. She is a very serious freelance editor of adult and children’s nonfiction. She lives in London.

Daniel Rieley grew up in Joyden’s Wood, in Kent, England. He studied at Arts University Bournemouth. He has directed animated films and is a serious camper and traveler. This is his first book. He lives in London.

This book is a not so serious book trying to be serious.  The narrator is trying to get the animals in the book to be serious but they fail so good!  This book is full of colorful pictures and laugh out loud commentary. It was very fun to read together with Awesome Annie and its one well enjoy for years to come.  Annie is excited to be able to get to read this on her own soon. 

Awesome Annie says that this book is good for kids that are 6 and under as well as parents who can read it with their kids.  That its ok for parents to read this book because its funny!
