Earl's got a bicycle made of hay.
He takes rides on the Milky Way.
Earl's too cool for me.
Earl's one cool character. He lunches with movie stars and keeps monster eyes in a jelly jar. But would he hang out with just a regular guy? Well, maybe even Earl needs a best friend.
The second book by the team that created Annie Bananie combines a joyous text with delightfully jazzy pictures. A heartwarming tribute to the power of friendship.

Leah Komaiko is the author of several popular rhyming books for children including Annie Bananie, a Children's Choice Award winner, and I Like the Music, a Reading Rainbow Review Book. She lives in Los Angeles, CA.
Laura Cornell lives in New York City with her daughter, Lily (first and only), but they spend much time in California, Laura's first state in her first home. She was asked to illustrate Jamie's first book, and that became ten. Lucky is the first word that comes to mind.From School Library Journal:
Grade 1-2 ``Earl's got a hat with a real horse feather,/ He wears socks made of chicken leather./ Earl's too cool for me.'' A nerdy lad with small glasses and hair parted in the middle is sure that Earl's just too hip to be a friend, but when the two finally meet they hit it off``Yes, Earl's pretty funny, and he's really nice./ He's eight years old and only thrown up twice.'' The young narrator concludes, ``We're as cool as cool can be.'' In the slightly grotesque watercolor illustrations, a la Henrik Drescher, but with a clearer, less speckled look, adults and children surround Earl in admiring crowds. As in Annie Bananie (Harper, 1987) Komaiko takes a fresh look at a well-worn subject, but compared to Clifton's Everett Anderson's Friend (Holt, 1976; o.p.), the treatment here is awkward and superficial, the ending too quick and easy.
