The Watermelon Seed

Title: The Watermelon Seed

Author: Greg Pizzoli

Publisher: Disney Hyperion Books

ISBN: 9781423171010

Obtained: Library copy

Why this book?:

I picked it up on a whim when I walked past on my way to dinner.



I was in the Lounge at work.

I had eaten and now I was looking at the book I had swiped on my way in.

I start reading silently to myself.

Then I read aloud softly, "I just swallowed a seed." ... Just how I hear it in my head.

The co-worker next to me asks, "What?"

Now everyone is listening and I repeat it.

And then proceed to read the remainder of the book aloud, giving it all the drama it's due.

By the end there were 4 adults (myself included) cracking up.  The others, I might add were practically hysterical.  Anyone walking in would have wondered at the scene we presented.

I thought this was going to be cute but ordinary.  Instead I LOVED it.  And I'm recommending it at work as well as here.  Greg Pizzoli is definitely an author I'll be on the lookout for.
