Billy Twitters and his Blue Whale Problem


Billy Twitters and his Blue Whale Problem
by Mac Barnett
illustrated by Adam Rex
Disney Hyperion New York
2009
Picture Book

Billy has been told and told and told to clean his room, brush his teeth, and eat his peas. If he doesn't, his parents have threatened to buy him a blue whale. But Billy is not worried because he knows the blue whale is the largest animal in the world. It's not like it could be delivered to his house. However, one morning Billy feels something is looking at him through the kitchen window. Sure enough, his parents have finally bought the whale. And yes....it was delivered to his house.

Kids will have fun learning about all the dos and don'ts of blue whale care as Billy takes his new charge to school. Adam Rex's illustrations greatly enhance the story, which has a memorable surprise ending.

I loved this book as well. The story was a little crazy at times but I laughed out loud. Also the illustrations were fantastic and hilarious as well. Definitely one of my favorites for the year!
