I've read over 200 picture books so far this year. I'm a judge for Fiction Picture Books again for the Cybils Awards, and most of the books have been in that category.
You'd think that picture books might lose their charm with me, but, no, I'm always amazed to find another wonderful story. And a goodly portion of the wonderful stories this year have been stories that make me laugh.
Here are some picture books with a bit of fun that I've read this year.
Friday Night Wrestlefest by J. F. Fox
A Book for Escargot by Dashka Slater
Animals Brag About Their Bottoms by Mai Saito
The Button Book by Sally Nicholls
Soaked! by Abi Cushman

I read for 16 hours.
