bookshelves: 2019, format-picture-books

This is an odd book that relies heavily on one (potentially creepy) punchline. The format is modeled after silent films, but it would be hard for kids who have never seen such a film to recognize that. For me, the story had a lot of build-up toward one moment that felt more like gimmick than climax. My kids also didn't gravitate toward it.
