Do You Know What Today Is?


Random Fictional Reader:  Yes, it’s August 27, 2013.

Me:  Besides that.

Random Fictional Reader:  It’s the day the Guinness Book of World Records was first published in 1955.

Me:  True.  But what else?  Think BIG.

Random Fictional Reader:  It’s the day the first hydrogen balloon flight reached 900 meters in altitude in 1783.

Me:  True.  True.  Think BIGGER.  Think MONKEYS!

Random Fictional Reader:  MONKEYS?  As in OOH OOH, EEE EEE, AAH AAH, I eat bananas kind-of-monkeys?

Me:  One in the same.  🙂

Random Fictional Reader:  You have me stumped.

Me:  It’s . . . It’s . . . Drum roll please . . .

It’s the day anxious kidlit fans have been waiting for since forever.  (All right, maybe not forever, but at least a few months, almost a year.)  It’s the day you can go out and finally buy Warning: Do Not Open this Book! by Adam Lehrhaupt and illustrated by Matthew Forsythe.


It’s available on:


Barnes and Noble,

and at a bunch of supercool independent bookstores.

And wait!  If you haven’t already checked out the trailer for this awesome book, please take a peek below.  Guaranteed to put a smile on your face.  🙂
