Sunday Love

A Three Silly Chicks' Pick


Sunday Love
by Alison Paul
Houghton Mifflin Books for Children
ISBN 978-0-618-99184-6


What is it?
A mostly wordless wonder which tells the tale of a forlorn convict (complete with stripes, ball and chain) looking for his true love. The illustrations follow his clever escape and the Keystone Cop chase that follows from from to frame of this clever book.


What do we love about it?
The black and white and red illustrations brimming with funny details and subplots. We found ourselves flipping back and forth from page to page just to soak in more of the fun.


What does it remind us of?
Reminds us that we clearly need more time to enjoy the good things in life -- like ice cream sundaes and this book!


What is it perfect for?
It's perfect for anyone who loves ice cream, cops and robbers, and pouring over treasure maps.


What do we think?
Sunday Love is a delectable treat from start to finish. Kids will revisit this one over and over and over . . .
