Short balls, tall balls.
Some people have more balls than others.
But the biggest balls of all,
The balls that make me laugh until I fall
Are the balls behind the newest book on my wall:
Congratulations to author Robyn Alana Engel and illustrator Steve Ferchaud, who have a new book coming out on Monday (cover designed by Bryan Pedas of A Beer For The Shower fame). I had the privilege of a preview and thought it quite clever, which is no surprise since it comes from the insane brain behind Life by Chocolate.
Here's a little taste of what you'll get when this book belongs to you:
One of the King’s most favored
things of all
was to swing
long rods at tiny balls.
Clueless Clan fans cheered him on.
“You win, feared Man!
You do know wrong!”
The King replied,
“I no good, it’s true.
I wrote the
Star Scrambled Egg song too!”
The Trumpeter's New Clothes is a short book, about the length of a young child's book, but it's an adult read. The illustrations are excellent and made me laugh out loud. This is a book you'll want to take to parties to share with your friends.
The Trumpeter's New Clothes earns The Highest Balltastic Janie Junebug Seal of Approval.
Note: The book begins with a warning that it's not for those who lean orange,and watch out if you have a case of sandarakinophobia, too.
The book is now available on Amazon at https://goo.gl/M8jqda
