Gimme Cracked Corn & I Will Share

GIMME CRACKED CORN & I WILL SHARE; Kevin O'Malley; Picture Book; New York: Walker & Company, 2007; unpaged.

Corn and chickens are a near-fatal combination in this groaner of a picture book where O'Malley shamelessly struts out nearly every elementary school joke about our feathered friends known to man and long-suffering Mom. O'Malley's illustrations are cheerily Gothic, if there is such a thing, and kids in the know should find this volume a laugh and a half.

This is a hilarious book. Just be sure you like puns.
