Very funny book, even adults will enjoy this one! My kids ask me to read this all the time! Highly recommend. Check it out!
From School Library Journal K-Gr 2—In this tongue-in-cheek tale, Mr. and Mrs. Dullard take great pride in being humdrum. Family activities include watching paint dry and savoring vanilla ice cream (“Hold the cones. And extract the vanilla”). The Dullards are horrified at exclamation marks, flowered wallpaper, and sociable neighbors bearing gifts of applesauce cake. They try their best to shelter their children from such colorful influences. Away from their parents’ watchful gaze, however, Salmieri’s colored-pencil illustrations humorously show Blanda, Borely, and Little Dud breaking out of their mild molds by juggling paintbrushes, climbing on clotheslines, and befriending puppies. There are also plenty of sight gags to chuckle at, from the children gathered around an unplugged, blank television screen to piles of plain cardboard boxes full of “gray shirts.” VERDICT This title follows in the quirky tradition of Harry Allard’s “The Stupids” books (Houghton), with clever wordplay and subversive fun that will appeal to children everywhere.—Linda Ludke, London Public Library, Ontario, Canada
Meet the Dullards Hardcover – March 24, 2015 by Sara Pennypacker (Author) Review
What a tremendously boring book. I was so bored my eyes fell out of their sockets. I hope the next one is even more bland. -Read Reviews-
Terrific book. My kids (6 and 4) enjoy it.
