An Incredibly Boring Story..... about Delia's Dull Day
by Andy Myer
32 pages; ages 4 - 6 years
Sleeping Bear Press, 2012
Nothing exciting ever happens to Delia. Take yesterday morning - nothing happened during breakfast except she spilled some milk. And on her way to the bus stop she passed by the same old houses that have always been there.
Poor Delia. If only she would stop texting and look up! Maybe she would see the balloons drifting overhead, or the pirate at the back of the school bus or the.... I don't want to spoil it for you, but there is a dinosaur in there somewhere. And perhaps an alien.
I love Andy Myer's wacky storytelling and color-filled illustrations. This book might make you turn off facebook for a day and look over your shoulder before backing out of the driveway. What fun!
