Featured today is a super clever picture book by author and illustrator Deb Lucke. It’s called Sneezenesia (2010, Clarion Books) and it’s about a boy who sneezes so hard that all his memories are sneezed out. He forgets his name, and where he is, and who his Mom is, and all the things he learned in school, and more. How will he ever get all those memories back in his brain? You’ll have to read the book to find out. The story is fun, the illustrations are unique (done in paint, collage, and Photoshop), and you and your children will like it, I guarantee it. Fun facts on the back jacket flap include this interesting (albeit gross) tidbit: “Our noses produce between one and two pints of mucus a day.” Where does all that mucus go? Something to think about, isn’t it?
