Summary: When you fall asleep chewing a wad of gum, you’re going to wake up in the morning with it stuck in your hair. Everyone has a solution: scissors, butter, grass clippings, noodles and bacon…before long your hair is one big mess. Your pet rabbit tries to eat the grass, and the cat decides to join the rabbit. When the police and firefighters show up, it’s time to put an end to things. “STOP!” you yell. “GET OUT! Please.” That’s enough to send everyone packing, including the gum, who jumps out of your hair saying, “Jeez. Rude.” So now you know how to get rid of gum in your hair, and not a moment too soon. It’s time for school. And Picture Day. 56 pages; ages 4-8.
Pros: I’m a big Adam Rex fan (looks like this is the eighth book I’ve reviewed that he’s written and/or illustrated), because his wacky stories and illustrations are so popular with kids. This one will definitely get a lot of laughs, with its catch rhyming text and increasingly out-of-control storyline and illustrations.
Cons: Everyone knows to use peanut butter for gum in hair, not butter.
