Guys Read: Funny Business - Now that's funny; I don't care who you are

I have long been a follower of the Guys Read website, a literacy initiative to light a literacy fire by matching boys to the right books and by providing positive male reader examples. It was started by guy author extraordinaire: Mr. Jon Scieszka. Author of .............. well, I was going to list a few favorites, but there's just too many to name!

I've been excited to get my hands on a copy of the new book Guys Read: Funny Business. Alas, I can't say that I've seen it, but if the book trailer is any indication, we're in for a treat!

Here's how Amazon describes the book: "Ten stories guaranteed to delight, amuse, and possibly make you spit your milk in your friend's face, from the following esteemed writers:
Mac Barnett
Eoin Colfer
Christopher Paul Curtis
Kate DiCamillo
Jon Scieszka
Paul Feig
Jack Gantos
Jeff Kinney
David Lubar
Adam Rex
David Yoo"

It is dismaying to see that there are no Florida chapters of Guys Read! I may have to add that to my plans ........

For more info. on Mr. Scieszka, begin at his website and make sure to stop by Guys Read.
