    We need more mopoke, mo-pokes!

    This is a funny book. A real picture book, where the images are tied with the words and the jokes.
    'Cause this is really a funny book.

    The Mopoke loves peace and quiet, but you can't always get what you want - and that's life, my child.

    Reading this book out loud, turning the pages, discovering the new puns is so satisfying. As an adult a glimpse of the page and I read&watch the image, but the child... she watch the image and try to come out with a joke. And you laugh with your toddler. A lot.
    There isn't much of a story in this book, but the interaction with my child while reading it it's the Story itself.

    We read it at nigh, so after the final No-poke, we add a "Nighty Nite-poke" and - finger crossed - we sleep.

    The design and the development of the book reminded me of Jon Klassen's Hat trilogy, but still has a strong personality of its own.
