FUNNY – I like to read comics bk

Mossy and Tweed: Crazy for Coconuts by Mirka Hokkanen

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I adore this book! It is hysterically funny. I don’t normally love slapstick, but Mirka Hokkanen has captured the style of cartoon slapstick that all kids know isn’t real – and clarified it well early on when Tweed is flattened like a pancake by the coconut. I am trying hard not to reveal the funny punny like places, but the author doesn’t miss a beat in her timing and inclusion of funny ideas into the art and story. My favorites are those mischievous pixies, and the old emotional ‘Unicorn’.

At the end I missed the funny home improvements until going back for a reread. I think, like me, however, kids will want to read this time and again. Plus a second Mossy and Tweed are on the way soon!

It’s a book beginning readers can handle alone, or you can enjoy laughing along with kids as you read it aloud.

bonnie - birth name with a boring story behind it. fireUrchin - acquired by life - it being a bioluminescent sea urchin with a sharp outer protection, poison for those who step on it, yet offering a glowing light from within . . . while living close to the ocean floor . . . and offering protection and rides to fellow sea creatures like lobsters, crabs, small fish, octopus. Deep sometimes dark explorations may transform into light making.
