We picked up this book at the library, and it ended up being a hit with the entire family! My 18-month-old son LOVES the fun pictures - he especially liked looking at all the monkeys. He even enjoyed having this book read to him.
My mother and grandmother both got a huge kick out of this book - my mom started reading it to my son, but when he left the room, she and my grandma were still up there reading and laughing aloud! My husband tried it out and couldn't help but read the entire book out loud, with no one else in the room.
It came at no surprise that this book was authored by Jon Agee, who wrote and illustrated one of my favorite books, Go Hang a Salami! I'm a Lasagna Hog!: and Other Palindromes, an awesome and hilarious book on palindromes. He has done it again in Orangutan Tongs, and apparently has written a total of seven books on word-play - can't wait to check them all out!
