This is a very funny book.
There is not much to it. Just photos and captions, derived from a parent's blog, and viewers' responses and examples.
But children who are crying outrageously for no other reason than that they are children, and something un-utterly dreadful has just happened to them, are clearly very funny to look at, especially when the captions for each screaming child explain that there is really no reason at all for all the fuss.
(Fortunately you can't hear the noise. Just as fortunately you don't have to deal with the tears and sobs.)
One child asked for butter on his rice, and simply erupts into bellowing floods of tears because Daddy put butter on his rice.
The child on the cover asked for a slice of cheese, and kind Daddy broke the slice into two halves to make it easy to eat. What an outrage on infant sensibilities!
(It reminds me of the Charles Schultz "Peanuts" strip where little Sally -- I think -- is distressed by the idea of a bread and butter sandwich being cut, rather than FOLDED. They lose all the flavour when they are cut. Yeah. Right. Charlie Brown knew that. Too bad he cut the bread and butter sandwich instead of folding it.)
This is a brilliant coffee-table kitchen bench-top book for frazzled parents.
