Staff Reviews

What happens when a boa constrictor goes on a field trip? Nonsense, that's what. This was my favorite picture book as a child (and still is as an adult), in equal parts because of the funny chain of cause-and-effect and the vibrant illustrations. This is my go-to gift for kids' birthdays, and it has yet to disappoint.

— From The Day Jimmy's Boa Ate the Wash (Staff Pick)


Jimmy's boa constrictor wreaks havoc on the class trip to a farm.
