About this title

Synopsis:

Meet Walter.And better yet, turn the pages and --meet his staff. The Gum Guy, who archives his chewed-up gum. His Homework Helper who does...well, you know. A complete Dream Team, to do his sleeping for him...And thats only the beginning!This laugh-out-loud picture book is a dream come true for any kid who has ever wanted someone else to kiss Aunt Winnie or eat their lima beans. Author Patricia Marx and illustrator Roz Chast prove with hilarity that anyone can have the staff they need, if they have enough imagination.

Review:

This is one of those books that you buy as a gift for a child, then keep for yourself. Written by Patricia Marx, who has sharpened her wit on TV shows such as Saturday Night Live and Rugrats, and illustrated by the inimitable Roz Chast, Meet My Staff is perfect for anyone with a healthy funny bone, no matter what their age. Walter is a boy who has it easy, thanks to his huge staff of helpers. There's the Homework Helper, who knows just about everything, the Lima Bean Man, who handles all unpleasant vegetables, and even a crowd of laughers who think Walter is just hilarious. There's a lot of stuff that needs to be done when you're a kid, and Walter has everything covered. The staff members are introduced in full-page, full-color cartoons that are packed with enough sight gags to reward repeated readings, and the story is sure to inspire the imagination of any 8-year-old who hates to tidy his or her own room. Grownups will realize that they need a staff too! How about Chris the Carpool Driver, or Samantha the Recycling Sorter? --Simon Leake
