Description
Back by popular demand after five decades, cartoonist and writer Stoo Hample's book of illustrated songs and poems is again inducing giggles and fits in prereaders who find the wrong word hilarious. Puns, word substitutions, and surprise endings abound; "Eat your bread and butterfly, and then go right to teeth," goes one silly goodnight song, while Hample's "Silly Humpty Dumpty" ends with "All the king's horses / and all the king's men / had scrambled eggs." Throughout, characters like the mustachioed Boodleheimer offer commentary, and this edition includes an audio CD of The Silly Record, originally an LP inspired by Hample's silly songs.

"Stoo Hample is the da Vinci of Daft, the Socrates of Screwy, and the Gershwin of Goofy. His book is mordant, scintillating, pungent, and deeply profound."— Norton Juster

"The Silly Book is—ha ha—so silly—ha ha—that I have trouble—ha ha—thinking about it while writing this—ha ha ha ha—blurb. I mean, have you noticed that the first two—ha ha—letters in Hample are Ha? I mean—ha ha—isn't that—? It's so—ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. Forgive me."—Jules Feiffer
