As a child, this was one of my favorite books, and indeed one of the most popular books in the library.
Each page is a large, literal illustration about an adult conversation overheard by a child. All of them are homonyms, as in the title, "A Chocolate Moose for Dinner." Some others that come to mind are, "After dinner Mommy toasted Daddy," "airplane hangers, "gorilla wars," and "the under toe."
One of the interesting things about this book is that Gwynne makes no effort to be educational in it; rather, it is all about fun and funny things. There are no explanations or corrections about what the phrases really mean, which actually encourages some discussion with older siblings and parents.
The bottom line is that the book is fun on its own, whether you understand the full meaning of the phrases or not.

There is not much to describe, but as a child, I read this book on a weekly (if not daily) basis. Read full review
