I Will Not Read This Book by Cece Meng, illustrated by Joy Ang
Rating: 3 stars
Clearly this author knows kids, and she wanted a book that would sell. She knew that if she told kids not to do something they would do it. Has she met Ben? Hmmm...
This book has a bunch of really cute illustrations about a boy doing anything but getting to the book-readin' time of night. He stalls in some creative ways, using different parts of his room as fodder for his procrastination, but in the end finally realizes that he wants his mom to read the book with him.
That's it. Not much more, really. Cute, but no huge story to explain or think about or anything...
I think this was my most succinct review ever!
