Animal House: 06/03/15
In Animal House by Candace Ryan and illustrated by Nathan Hale, Ms. Nuddles goes to check up on Jeremy, her wildest student. Turns out the house he lives in is even more wild. It's literally built of animals, all of whom are one outrageous pun after another.
While the plays on words are fun by themselves, it's Nathan Hale's exuberant paintings that make this book. Even if a child doesn't understand the puns, the illustrations are funny by themselves.
The book two reads for us. First we just read the book and enjoyed the silly pictures. Then we went back and talked about the puns that the children didn't understand. We also discussed our favorite animals and puns.
