Bits and Pieces: Mac Barnett and Christian Robinson are kind of legends at this point in the KidLit game and I’m so pleased they teamed up again. I’ve read all their works and can give you the OK to do the same. Mac has taken us back to the basics of picture books with Twenty Questions and given the reins to the reader and their imagination. This is the type of book that parents and kids love as it changes each time you read it. 

Not Sure About: No notes!

Favorite Part: Question 12. I don’t want to give it away… but I was quite carried away with imagination on that one.
