A Bit More Bert

Front Cover
Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 2002 - Juvenile Fiction - 32 pages
0 Reviews
The bumbling, child-friendly hero of The Adventures of Bert returns to transform mundane moments and everyday tasks into "adventures" that are now even more ridiculous. We meet Bert's mother (and learn Bert's secret regarding her boiled cabbage). We help Bert get a haircut (with uneven results). And we cheer Bert on as he searches for his lost dog (also named Bert, as are a number of people along the way to whom Bert turns for help). In the end, after a happy reunion between man and dog, there are all sorts of Berts to say good night to.

In a starred review, The Horn Book predicted that Bert's first book "will score a direct hit on five-year-old funnybones." In their second collaboration, author and artist have amplified the visual and verbal fun with even more artful, absurd results.
