I adore Roz Chast and everything she creates. I laughed my way through this picture book which won't be all that helpful in learning HOW to tell time, but is a hilarious way to PASS the time.

You might think that a book with this title would have something to do with telling time. It does NOT.

This wacky romp from "New Yorker "cartoonist Roz Chast includes entertaining antics for every hour, on the hour. Counting time has never been so fun! From 12 to 1, Lynn eats baloney With her imaginary friend, Tony. From 1 to 2, in his fanciest pants, Don is digging a hole to France. Do you ever wonder what your friends, enemies, brothers, sisters, and children are doing in the hours when you're not there? This kooky twenty-four-hour tour of a day in the life of twenty-three different children will reveal answers from the absurd ... to the hilarious ... to the absurdly hilarious! Beloved "New Yorker" cartoonist Roz Chast is at her finest in this picture book brimming with her trademark stamp of zany humour.
