The Shermanettes love silly stories! Here are a few of our favorite picture books that make us laugh out loud.
Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!
When a bus driver takes a break from his route, a very unlikely volunteer springs up to take his place-a pigeon! But you've never met one like this before. As he pleads, wheedles, and begs his way through the book, children will love being able to answer back and decide his fate.
No! That's Wrong!
When is a hat not a hat? (And when are underpants not underpants? A serendipitous breeze starts off this playful journey which begs the seemingly simple question, "When is a hat, not a hat?" Along the way, Rabbit manages to learn a little bit about friendship, fashion, and the importance of believing in himself.
The Book with No Pictures
You might think a book with no pictures seems boring and serious. Except . . . here’s how books work. Everything written on the page has to be said by the person reading it aloud. Even if the words say . . . BLORK. Or BLUURF. Even if the words are a preposterous song about eating ants for breakfast, or just a list of astonishingly goofy sounds like BLAGGITY BLAGGITY and GLIBBITY GLOBBITY.
Warning: Do Not Open this Book!
It looks like a book, it feels like a book, and it even smells like a book. But watch out...madness and mayhem lie within! Debut author Adam Lehrhaupt urges you NOT to take a walk on the wild side in this humorous, interactive romp. This quirky, subversive creation begs to be enjoyed again and again and again.
The classic schoolyard joke has been recast as an irreverent picture book, with call-and-response parts for parent and child. The humor builds to a surprising and satisfying conclusion. Warning: Kids will want to read this one over and over and over again!
No Laughing, No Smiling, No Giggling

This humorously subversive picture book invites brave readers to join Freddy Fafnaffer, the pig, in disobeying the bossy Mr. Frindimpny, in three comic acts.
