Um, so y'all know I love Mac Barnett, right?!  So I think I might love him even more now after this adorable new picture book that plays off of the old game of telephone!  Such a fun concept...and fabulous illustrations!

Telephone by Mac Barnett

The Blurb

It's time to fly home for dinner! In this witty picture book from award-winning and bestselling author Mac Barnett, a mother bird gives the bird next to her a message for little Peter. But passing messages on a telephone line isn't as simple as it sounds. Each subsequent bird understands Mama's message according to its own very particular hobbies. Will Peter ever get home for dinner? This uproarious interpretation of a favorite children's game will get everyone giggling and is sure to lead to countless rereads.
