Why the Chicken Crossed the Road

Our rating: ****

A chicken crosses the road, beginning a hilarious chain reaction involving a burglar, an explosion, and stampeding cows.

Macaulay’s genius shines through brilliantly. The adults reading this book will enjoy it more than the children they are reading to. Make sure you look closely at the pictures for speech bubbles, goofy happenings, and the burglar hiding on most pages.

Motel of the Mysteries

Our rating: ****

Ever wonder how much archeologists really know about the artifacts they dig up? What if they dug up our remains in the year 4022? Howard Carson discovers a buried motel with all the contents untouched. This could be the key to the burial rites of the ancient Yanks!

Here’s an absolutely hilarious book. Carson couldn’t be more wrong about any of his ideas about the things he finds, but he doesn’t know that. And then there’s Macaulay’s subtle humor that usually causes you to look back and go “What?!” You’ll be rolling on the floor by the time you finish reading this book!
