Guys Read: Funny Business
A collection of ten humorous short stories written by author superstars including: Adam Rex, Eion Colfer, David Lubar and Kate DiCamillo and yes, more! A nice assortment of stories with a little "something-for-everyone" appeal. While I did not LOVE every single installment, I recalled someone saying to me once that reading an anthology of short stories is akin to listening to a CD, rarely do you like every song on the disc. So true! The stories ranged from laugh-out-loud funny to heartwarming to extreme gross-out humor. The Dear Mr. Henshaw-esque story written by DiCamillo and book's editor Jon Scieszka is not to be missed. I cannot wait to get this into the hands of my patrons!
