When Mr Nogginbody has to babysit, he thinks it should be straight-forward: give the child a chocolate drink so he'll do his homework. Unfortunately for Mr N, he follows those steps in that order and the child refuses to study, teasing his sitter and jumping on the couch just out of reach. Determined to put a stop to the childish shenanigans, Mr Nogginbody jumps up after him. But he quickly discovers just how much fun being a kid can be. The ovoid hero of Mr. Nogginbody Gets a Hammer, which "has the timeless exuberance and psychological profundity of a great comedy" (Publishers Weekly, starred review), returns in another humorous tour de force from beloved picture book creator David Shannon. Grownupish grownup... What in the world does that mean?!
