Bright And Early Thursday Evening: A Tangled Tale

Bright And Early Thursday Evening: A Tangled Tale

by Audrey Wood, Don Wood Illustrated by Don Wood

Follow me —You go first! — into a whimsical dream of talking vegetables, sad weddings, happy funerals, and poor billionaires, a place where we can all sit down to dance.

A rhyming nonsense tale featuring a series of impossible occurrences, such as a bald-headed baby with hair hanging over its eyes and an egg-laying rooster. This oxymoron-laden tale combined with illustrations rendered using state-of-the-art digital technology is sure to amaze and delight one and all. This tangled tale from the creators of King Bidgood's in the Bathtub and The Napping House is guaranteed to make more sense today than it did tomorrow.

"A potent combination of technology and creativity." — Publishers Weekly
"Teachers now have a great tool for teaching paradoxes and contradictions." — American Bookseller
