The Silly Book

author/illustrator: Stoo Hample

"I am silly,
You are silly,
All of us are silly,

And everything in The Silly Book and The Silly Record is the silly-willynilliest! There are songy sills (oops!) —silly songs, silly stories, silly poems, silly secrets, silly things to do, a silly good-night, and even silly nothings. Anyone who reads this book — and hears this CD — will laugh like anything, or else turn into a bathtub. First published almost fifty years ago, when it became an uproariously silly success, The Silly Book and its companion, The Silly Record, are guaranteed to cause children (and nostalgic adults) to giggle like gigglecopters, roll on the floor, and cheer "Boodleheimer, Boodleheimer" (CLAP! CLAP! CLAP!).

By overwhelming popular demand, Stoo Hample’s 1961 classic features a reissue of the recording that inspired a generation of gigglers.
