About the Author:

"Laura Huliska-Beith grew up in Omaha, Nebraska, the oldest of five brothers and sisters. She credits her siblings as the inspiration behind many of the bad ideas in this book, as well as a few cebsored stunts such as "Jumping off the roof with a homemade parachute" and "Making your sister dance with a broken toe." She now lives in Kansas City, Missouri, with her husband, Jeff (also an inspiration!), and her dogs, George (who was kicked out of obedience school) and Roxy."

From Publishers Weekly:

First time author-illustrator Huliska-Beith is so sure that every youngster hatches such plans as "bringing home a cute, cuddly, stray animal" or "jumping off the high dive to show off your itsy-bitsy bathing suit" that she relishes listing good ideas gone bad (in no particular order) from her own childhood in this playfully wacky picture book. From "Bad Idea #98: Cramming something into a tight space without knowing if you can get it back out" (she pictures a child with a goldfish bowl on his head, another with a lima bean up his nose) to "Bad Idea #828: Throwing a surprise party for your imaginary friend," Huliska-Beith's wry look at such simultaneously embarrassing and hilarious moments will have readers cracking up. A crew of kids, parents, pets and innocent bystanders cavorts across the high-energy spreads, each scene a comic melange of acrylic paint, fabric and cut-paper collage. At every turn, arms flail, kids wail and eyeballs roll amidst such backdrops as flying ice cream or marching ants that take over show-and-tell. After this romp, both kids and adults may well be ready to share some of their "bad" ideas, too. All ages. (Sept.)
