My kinder students all loved I'M BORED by Michael Ian Black, illustrated by Debbie Ridpath Ohi. And they love anything by Mo Willems.

Michael, I love The Incredible Painting of Felix Clousseau -- hilarious! I often read it to my students.  Another incredibly funny book is Rotten Teeth, by Laura Simms.

Too many posts to see if this has been listed already, but Daniel and Kill PInkwater's Irving and Muktuk books totally crack me up every time I read them.

Michael, did anyone mention OTTO GROWS DOWN? Your book? Because it is one of the funniest I've ever read!

We also love ARNIE THE DOUGHNUT for its quirky humor.

Thanks, Tara! Yes, Otto was mentioned a couple of times, which warms my heart. (Especially since it's going out of print  :cry2)

We're all looking forward to Monstore!

IT'S MONDAY, MRS. JOLLY BONES! got a lot of laughs from my kids. It starts slow, with daily chores to be done, but the result of each chore is hilarious.

I don't think I could choose, but right now my kids laugh their heads off at Dragons Love Tacos and Dirt Boy.  I love Dirt Boy mostly because I think Fister Farnello is about the best character name in the history of picture books.  :pp
I love Who's Got The Apple.  Not necessarily laugh out loud funny, but it still fits on this list for me.
