What Dat? The Great Big Uglydoll Book of Things to Look at, Search for, Point to, and Wonder About
By David Horvath and Sun-Min Kim
Random House, c2011. Unpaged picture book.
This Uglydoll picture book is an incredibly strange, but entirely entertaining take on Richard Scarry's Busytown word books. Babo, the main Uglydoll, finds himself on adventures that take him everywhere from the backyard to the factory. There is much to see and learn! On the Gas page, you will find words like "stranded motorist," "speed limit sign," and "car scent canister." This is a fun book for vocabulary and humor. What Dat? boasts 563 illustrated words, both "wacky" and "wegular."
