Guess Again!

by and

Guess Again! Cover

 

Staff Pick

Guess Again! makes me laugh out loud every time I read it, and I've read it 10 or 20 times. Adam Rex's illustrations are perfectly suited to the goofy, silly rhymes of Mac Barnett. See if you can guess the answers to any of the riddles. I was surprised and delighted every time I turned a page!

Review:

"A funny, absurdist take on guessing game books from the team behind Billy Twitters and His Blue Whale Problem, these silly rhymes avoid easy answers (a robot who hatches from an egg and cries 'Cheep Cheep!' on the first page hints at the brand of humor in store). Beside a black silhouette of what appears to be a rabbit, Barnett's opening entry encourages readers to give a traditional answer to a four-line stanza: 'His floppy ears are long and funny./ Can you guess who? That's right! My.' But turning the page, readers see not a bunny, but 'Grandpa Ned,' shown standing on his head, his floppy gray socks providing the rabbit's lopped ears. What seem to be white sheep on a mountaintop are actually abominable snow monsters, Grandpa Ned appears again in a tree like the Cheshire cat and a dragonlike shadow that terrifies a knight belongs to a dentist. The playful tone is enhanced by cutouts, flaps and a triple-page foldout, but knowing the answers to the amusing visual/linguistic jokes may limit the book's potential for rereadings. Still, readers should find this twisted good fun. Ages 4 — 8. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

A hilarious book of guessing that will keep readers of all ages wondering what could possibly come next!
