book for very early primary, preschool and kindergarten. A little pea doesn't like to eat his candy for dinner, but after he does he gets to eat his vegetables for a treat.

Until I read this book, Amy Krouse Rosenthal was known to me only as a children's book author (the really funny, talented author of such gems as [b:Duck! Rabbit!|6124878|Duck! Rabbit!|Amy Krouse Rosenthal|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1266525261s/6124878.jpg|6303340] and [b:Little Oink|6012397|Little Oink|Amy Krouse Rosenthal|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1248106490s/6012397.jpg|6187619]). When I found out she'd written a book for adults, I thought it would probably be as irreverent, amusing and creative as her books for young people. I was right!

Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life is unlike most other memoirs. It's a reference book about Amy's existence made up of very short entries of completely random Amy-related information. Sometimes it's funny, sometimes poignant. Many times she shares one of those spot-on observations about life that you've never really thought about, but know instantly to be true. For example, from the entry "BOWLING" comes this reflection: "It would be difficult to convince me that leaning has no effect whatsoever on the outcome of my bowling."

This is a super adorable book that takes a totally recognizable situation--parents making their son clean up his room--and turns it on its head. Kids will giggle as clean-loving Little Oink is forced to mess up his room. (Look for this author's other books where animal parents make their kids eat candy and stay up late.) Another funny alternate-universe story with fantastic pictures.
