'It's a Book'
With corkscrew logic, Lane Smith explores a conversation between a book lover and a technophile in "Its a Book" (Roaring Brook). Three characters an ever patient monkey, a jackass, and a mouse talk about the book that Monkey wants to read. Does it scroll? Can you blog with it? Can it text or tweet? Finally, the jackass, who has been pestering the monkey with these questions, picks up the book and gets lost in it.
