Synopsis: Yellow Bird has a button. It does . . . nothing! It is a good for nothing button. Red Bird and Blue Bird are excited to try the button. But when they press it, they discover that the button makes them happy. Happy is something! A flabbergasted Yellow Bird insists the button does nothing. But it sure does seem to be making him mad. Mad is something! The hilarious debate that follows takes readers on an emotional roller coaster that pokes at the power of imaginative play.
My thoughts: I think this book is so funny and it feeds the need for our Mo fans of Elephant and Piggie. They will love the books in this series, the children I have read these to have loved them so far. This is great as a read aloud as well.
