Zip It!

By Jane Lindaman
Illustrated by Nancy Carlson

This is a clever, zany energetic picturebook full of wordplay and great kid perspective. Should be a great success with boys.

Parents are too busy. They're wrapped up in their own dramas, and they don't listen when their kids have important things to tell them. Zip It! is one such cautionary tale. Joe's father won't listen to Joe tell him about a minor trouser oversight. The results are embarrassing. And hilarious.

  • A funny, clever picture book with strong appeal for boys.
  • Lots of word play. Great riffs on the always appealing theme of adults who don't quite listen to kids.
  • Positive father-son story.
