By Aaron Blabey, Penguin ( Viking), hardcover, $ 24.95
ONE day, Noah Dreary complained so much his head fell off.
The doctors told his mum there was nothing they could do about it; Noah would have to learn to live with it.
But all Noah does is continue to whinge until the eventful day when a gust of wind changes his outlook on everything.
This hilarious and quirky story, accompanied by Blabey’s adorably funny illustrations, carries a terrific message about being grateful for what we have.
But more than that, it will simply make kids laugh and that’s always a very, very good thing.
