Publisher's Description

From the beloved New York Times bestselling author of I Wish You More, Amy Krouse Rosenthal, "a joyous, totally original potpourri of stories, poems, lists, palindromes, visual jokes, and random observations about the universal delights and conundrums of childhood."

Reminiscent of classics like Falling Up from Shel Silverstein, this 80-page black-and-white book is meant for sharing and taps into the delightfully inquisitive world of a child.

Amy Krouse Rosenthal said it best:

Hello, You! 

So . . . this book is full of stuff I've always wondered about . . .

Like:

  • Did Miss Mary Mack have friends who liked other colors?
  • Could everything important about the world be summarized in a poem that rhymes?
  • How do moms always know when you're about to sneak a cookie?
  • Who hid something under the Tooth Fairy's pillow when she was a little girl?

Inside you will find stories, short poems, lists, palindromes, visual treats, and random observations. Some parts are happy, some sad-ish, some silly, some serious, some crunchy, some with a soft center.

You can open the book up anywhere and read. So the beginning could be the end, and the end could be the beginning. But I guess the middle is always the middle. . . .

P.S. Aren't Paul's drawings the best?!

—Amy Krouse Rosenthal
