REVIEW: Chicken Cheeks by Michael Black

Book Jacket

Rating: 4.5/5 Stars
Audience: Pre-K to 1st Grade
Genre: Picture Book
Summary: Some bears will go to any length to get some honey. This one recruits every animal that comes along to form, well, at stack. The result? Tail of the duck to the gluteus maximus of the duck-billed platypus (with many other rears in between).

Lucinda's Thoughts:  I laughed my rear off (no pun intended!) when I read this book.  The plays on words that Black uses accompanied by Hawkes comical illustrations are just what is needed to brighten up a dull day!  This book will appeal to children and adults with its "butt humor" and will be a hit to read to any little jokester.

Just a little something from the author!

Amazing book...It had my entire family laughing from start to finish. I am so glad my wife brought this one home.

This is a family favorite. We can all recite it without reading the words. The video is hysterical as well! :)

Mr. Black missed a few of our favorite euphemisms like: Bon Bons
, Booty
, Buns
,Tush and
Tail Piece. I don't think he has a fetish just because he can rhyme titles for the "rear end" with animal names. But, if he comes out with a sequel that focuses on another body part, he might be suspect.
