Silliness, that’s what you get with On Account of the Gum. Silliness in pink gum and brown hair and laden with cats and aunties. Adam Rex must have had a hoot writing and illustrating this grade school picture book. Come on and laugh with me! Affiliate links will be used.
About “On Account of the Gum”
Adam Rex wrote a hilariously fun read with On Account of the Gum”. Written kinda like the books “If you give a mouse a cookie” where one action leads to another. A fun read where you wonder just what pit-fall will happen next. Your children will enjoy the unexpected consequences of good intentions.
Published by Chronicle books, this 56 page picture book will delight children 5-8 years. The bright colours will draw them in, the silly antics will bring out the laughter. Can you imagine a rabbit in your hair?
The font is huge! So great for reading with a group of children. I can well imagine a circle of children giggling away. Wouldn’t it be fun to stop at the end of a page and ask “what do you think will happen when they bring in the cat?” Wouldn’t it be fun to hear all the answers?
Should you get it?
If you are looking for a silly book to enjoy with your children, On account of the Gum will fit the bill marvellously.
The full-colour images fill the pages and just add to the humour found within. Wacky ideas, improbable solutions, and bizarre mishaps. You never quite know what might happen next. It was my pleasure to review this picture book for Raincoast Books.
