The Boys by Jeff Newman

February 25, 2010

The last time I was working the YS desk at VA a parent asked me for a wordless picture book.  I’m not sure if this is a common request, but if it is, add The Boys by Jeff Newman to your list.  The only words it includes are the days of the week as a new boy in town first imitates and then learns from his elders.  I really liked the retro illustrations in this book and I obviously didn’t spend enough time with it since the reviewers picked up on plot points that I missed.
