Animals Should Definitely Not Wear Clothing by Judi Barrett
This cute book tells why animals should not wear clothing by telling how odd it would look or that animals might even wear them wrong. My favorite images of the animals wearing clothing is how many neckties a Giraffe can wear or that a billy goat might eat his clothes! If your a lover of chickens then seeing a chicken wearing clothes will be a funny sight for you. Whatever you do just don’t give a porcupine clothes to wear.

While trying to be a great role model for the first year students Wiglaf gets partnered with a troll who is always joking around.

Bad Kitty Gets a Bath by Nick Bruel
In this great adventure bad kitty teaches the do’s and don’ts of giving your cat a bath. There is the difficult ways which are funny to read an the illustrations are funny as well. I love how in the house all the furniture is portrayed as being torn up or scratched up even the humans as well. The dog even gets an amusing bath in this book as well but it too is a joke for the cat to trick her into a getting a bath. Don’t be tricked by a calm cat at bath time, she may be waiting to attack.
