Im Bored by Michael Ian Black
okay, this book is adorable.
and it was pretty awesome of ariel to give this to me on her birthday, all because i saw it in a bookstore window one time and knew i needed to read it, and she delivered.
the drawings in this book are so freaking cute. so. cute. the book tells the tale of a girl who is bored bored bored, and when she is bored, she gets LOUD ABOUT BEING BORED. which is maybe something i do. maybe.
but instead of having a greg to try to cheer her up and distract her out of her LOUDLY EXPRESSED BOREDOM,
she has a potato who rolls up to tell her that HE is bored because SHE IS BORING! which if you ask me, is just asking to get turned into a mash, but instead, she tries to reason with it, showing it all the things she can do that are fun.
but he is a stubborn ole potato.
it is a very clever book, in which a mean tuber eventually gets comeuppance.
oh my god, and it turns out, the illustrator is adorable, too!
i bet she is never bored...
