A monkey, a mouse, and a "Donkey" walk into a library... and so begins the joke.

The monkey is quietly looking at this rectangular thing that opens up, and the inside is covered with words that seem to run left to right top to botton. The "Donkey" ;) understandably, has no idea what he is doing with that contraption or what it is for.

"It's a Book" is one of the funniest books I have ever read, and it is quite apropos for the generation that we live in where paper and ink seems to be antiquated and children are not developing the fine motor skills necessary to turn pages, but seem to have rapid eye and thumb dexterity. Pick up a real book now, and start with this one "It's a Book". You'll thank me.
