The boars are back!

While not quite as engaging as the first book, nor as useful in teaching/correcting errant behavior in one's own children, this is fun in its own right. Make that hilarious.

The ravenous wild boars start off eating enormous quantities of things. Some are not food, which to preschool-aged children is THE funniest thing ever. When Doris, dear little Doris, discovers a recipe for Massive Pudding (which appears to undergo a bit of tampering), we move into the realm of the truly absurd. Every time I turned to the page with the completed Massive Pudding I laughed out loud. Not an LOL, but a real, literal laughing out loud.

We borrowed this from the library, and I'm afraid I'm going to have to own it.
