From Bruce Eric Kaplan, the author of Monsters Eat Whiny Children, comes a sidesplitting story about a dad's determination to share a favorite book with his son, who would prefer to do anything else--perfect for fans of books by Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel. Morris is excited to share his favorite childhood book with his son, Benny. The problem? Benny isn't interested. Not even if it's the last book in the pile.
Not even if it's the last book in the house.
Not even if it's the only book Morris brings on their desert vacation, and their plane has just left, and their train has just departed, and the camel they rode in on is far, far, away. And they are stranded. Not even then. Unless...?

About Bruce Eric Kaplan

Bruce Eric Kaplan, known for his distinctive, off-beat single-panel cartoons, has been a New Yorker cartoonist for more than fifteen years. He is also a television writer and was an executive producer for the acclaimed HBO series Six Feet Under, as well as a writer on Seinfeld (funnily enough, one of his most well-known episodes is one where Elaine becomes increasingly frustrated over what she takes to be an utterly nonsensical New Yorker cartoon). He has authored and illustrated seven adult titles including the cult classic The Cat That Changed My Life; the collections I Love You, I Hate You, I'm Hungry; No One You Know; and This Is a Bad Time; and three titles featuring the wonderfully neurotic Brooklyn couple Edmund and Rosemary: Every Person on the Planet, Edmund and Rosemary Go to Hell, and Everything Is Going to Be Okay. Bruce is also the author and illustrator of five picture books: Monsters Eat Whiny Children, Cousin Irv from Mars, Meaniehead, Someone Farted, and You Have to Read This Book. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two children.
