Kindergarten-Grade 3 Because of the formatbrief text plus many dialogue balloonsthis story will be more successful for individual reading than for group reading. Louie and Mary Ann complain of boredom to Grandpa who, in his usual droll and understated way, reminisces about the time he and his brother Wainwright were bored while visiting their grandparents' farm. Stevenson's watercolor and ink cartoon-style illustrations perfectly capture the absurdity of the adventure, from the dust settling (fuf . . .fuf. . .fuf) to the cows yawning to the birds which "were so bored, they kept dozing off and falling out of the trees." This book reinforces Stevenson's reputation as an author who can provide inventive, original, exciting and truly funny books. A great complement to Spier's Bored, Nothing to Do (Doubleday, 1978).
