Well, hmmm. I give this odd little book something of a pass for having originally been published in France, with admittedly weirder and darker humor than we are used to on this side of the pond. Buuuuut I can't say I'd call this a kids' book. Some things that are listed as dangerous: putting a plastic bag over your head; shutting yourself in the freezer; smoking cigarettes. And perhaps this could just be read as a cautionary list, if not for the joyful cartoon boy blithely doing all of these things. Strangely unsettling. Put in the "to be debated" pile with It's A Book or The Higher Power of Lucky...or maybe put it on a gift list for adults who are expecting.
