Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stoo Hample's 1961 classic elicits a fresh round of giggles with this irresistible edition featuring new art from the author-illustrator — and the same wonderful retro feel.

I am silly,

You are silly,

All of us are silly,

Willy.

And everything in THE SILLY BOOK is the silly-willy-nilliest! There are songy sills (oops!) — silly songs, silly stories, silly poems, silly secrets, silly things to do, a silly good-night, and even silly nothings. Anyone who reads this book will laugh like anything or else turn into a bathtub. First published more than forty years ago — when it became an uproariously silly success — THE SILLY BOOK has returned to cause a new generation of children to giggle like gigglecopters (giggle giggle giggle), roll on the floor (roll roll roll), and cheer, "Boodleheimer, Boodleheimer" (CLAP! CLAP! CLAP!).

About the Author

Stoo Hample is the author and illustrator of many books for children, including MY MOM'S THE BEST MOM, YOU STINK! I LOVE YOU, and the international bestseller CHILDREN'S LETTERS TO GOD. THE SILLY BOOK, Stoo Hample's first book, was originally edited by the legendary children's book editor Ursula Nordstrom. The book became a colossal hit, and its popularity led to THE SILLY RECORD, a Boodleheimer doll, and other silly merchandise. This is a book for those who, like the author, believe in silliness. "Life," he maintains, "is essentially silly, or why would there be war, disease, and dandruff?"
