'The Grossest Picture Book Ever' Promotes Literacy through Laughter and Nausea
By: Whimsical World
In the town of Gross, things are quite different than most other places. Here, everyone loves out-grossing one another and there's a new gross surprise waiting around every corner. You'll meet Larry Magoo and his truck made of poo, Libby Sue Groches and her millions of pet roaches, Benjamin Blott and his house made of snot, the grossest restaurant in history, and more! Derek weaves valuable environmental themes into the storyline, adding important messaging into the mix.
Hilariously and vividly illustrated by Lynx Studios, The Grossest Picture Book Ever is a laugh-a-page, one-of-a-kind book for ages 4 to 8 that inspires kids to fall in love with reading, writing, and wordplay through laughter, grossness, and weirdness.
"I must apologize to all parents in advance," says author Derek Taylor Kent. "If your kid liked potty humor before, this is going to take it to a whole nother level. However, I hope you can laugh along with them because all of us are gross in our own weird way. Let's celebrate it!"
An added bonus: there's a contest at the end of book where readers can post videos of themselves trying to read the book out loud without laughing. No one has succeeded yet! The hardcover edition retails for $24.95 and will be available on Amazon.com, bookstores, and select children's boutiques, gift shops, and children's museums throughout North America.
Personalized, autographed editions of The Grossest Picture Book Ever along with bonus gifts will be available at http://www.WhimsicalWorldBooks.com.
