What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

From the coauthor of the smash hit All My Friends Are Dead and the creator of the beloved Dory Fantasmagory chapter book series comes a hilarious read aloud about a boy who loses his gift for rhyme. There once was a youngster named Chester van ChimeWho woke up one day and forgot how to rhyme.Chester loved rhyming, in poem or song.It always felt right, but today it felt…not right. VERY not right. Chester van Chime is usually the BEST at rhyming. He can normally tell you all about cats wearing hats and snails delivering mail, but today, something has changed. Today there’s no dog on a log. No duck in a truck. Just a Pomeranian on a sideways tree and a waterfowl in a full-size pickup. What’s a kid to do?! Filled with irresistible wordplay and whimsically silly illustrations, bestselling creators Avery Monsen and Abby Hanlon’s read aloud tells the story of a boy who learns not to be stressed if he’s not at his…tippy-top peak performance.
