People don't notice Jerry. If someone bumps into him, they don't say sorry. If someone waves, it's to somebody behind him. He never gets picked last for sports teams, but that's because he never gets picked at all. It's like he's invisible. That is, until Molly comes along. Molly asks Jerry his opinion. She shares things with him, she laughs with him and she sees him. Jerry soon realizes he can pay her gift forward, as there are plenty of other kids who feel invisible too. In today's busy world, there are lots of people who feel like they're on the outside looking in. This picture book is written for them, to show them that there are people out there who will see them, who will recognize their talents, and see how worthy they are. Bestselling author Adam Wallace (How to Catch an Elf) was inspired to write Invisible Jerry based on his own experiences as a shy kid growing up. This story comes straight from the heart.
The author of 'Better Out Than In' and 'Better Out Than In Number Twos' is back with a collection of random musings and drawings that will make kids laugh out loud. It includes Adam's wacky view of topics including 'Top 5 Dance Moves', 'Top 5 Super Powers' and 'Things That Look Cute But Will Scratch Your Eyes Out If You Try To Hug Them'. There's even a recipe for Roast Monkey Butt with Tofu and Apples (No monkeys were harmed in the making of this book though!). It's random, it's weird and it's definitely hilarious! As Adam says, "e;Look, to be honest, it was just me rambling on about anything that popped into my head, and now there is a whole book of this random stuff! A WHOLE BOOK! THIS BOOK! OMG! Which means Oh My God. It doesn't mean, as I initially thought, Old Men Giggled. And LOL doesn't mean Lots Of Love! I found that out when someone died and I wrote to their wife and said, 'I hear that your husband died. I'm sorry. LOL.' It didn't go down too well."e;
An awesomely gross book by Bestselling children's author, Adam Wallace! Better Out Than In is full of funny rhyming little tales like "e;Valerie's Vomit"e;, "e;Peter's Pimple"e; and "e;Nancy's Nose"e;! This little gem covers all the profound dinner party conversations at the child's table: gross stories, fart noises, chewed up food and lots, lots more! For kids who love a healthy dose of gross, this book is fully sick.
I'm not going to lie to you. This book is so gross, the grossness has been grossonified. Yes, not only does it contain grossness at a level similar to that in Better Out Than In, it goes even further. It's like, if the grossness level in Better Out Than In was, say, as tall as a baby, then the grossness level in Better Out Than In Number Twos is as tall as the tallest man in the world, standing on the second tallest man in the world's shoulders, and they are both on tippy-toes, and have their hands in the air, and are at the very top of the tallest tree on top of a hill. A tall hill. It's like, if the grossness level in Better Out Than In was a nine on a grossness scale, where one is the lowest and ten is the highest, then Better Out Than In Number Twos would be approximately 1,000,000,000.340 on that same grossness scale.
THE AUTHOR SAYS, 'Greetings readers and listeners, and welcome to the final instalment in the Incredible Journey of Pete McGee... okay, okay, don't get all stressed. I will tell you right now that Pete does not die in this book. I'm pretty sure anyway.'
