For ages 6-8. Once upon a time there was a boy and a girl who were supposed to tell their favourite fairy tale to the class for a library project, but they couldn’t agree on a story. Argue, argue, argue. Should a princess who loves ponies or a cool muscle dude who loves motorcycles win the day? You chose.
Boy vs Girl
Very funny book, really enjoyed it.
Perfect for the brothers and sisters of the family
It's a really funny book! I like how it's kids telling a story within the story.
Didn't make a lot of sense. I had trouble understanding this one.
I read this one to a group of Kindergarteners and grade 1 students for a story time outreach. They LOVED it. I kept them involved by asking the kids which story development they prefered: the girl's or the boy's. The illustrations are marvelous - and though the distinctions between the male and female traits of the story are stereotypical...there is a reason! :) Boys will be boys...and they know it, and to my delight, are excited about it. And vice versa.
There are a lot of contrasts in this story: the contrast between the tales illustrations and the cartoonish narrators, a cute girls story to a cool boys, a tale of woo to that of a battle royale, etc. Because of the interaction of the two though, the narrators start to incorporate the other elements into their stories to make one silly mash up of a fairy tale!
Great book for families with a girl and a boy twins or close in age. Very funny.
i liked the boy and girl and boy had to work together.
Remember that email that circulated around the Internet about a man and a woman in college that had to do a writing exercise together for a college course? Well imagine that email as a picture book and the college students are in elementary instead and you have the hilarious Once Upon a Cool Motorcycle Dude by Kevin O'Malley. The title alone is enough to make you pick up this book, but the competing illustration styles to match the competing stories are enough to make you stay. Now layer on a funny story that exploits the differences between male and female stories and you have a brilliant picture book that is perfect for junior and intermediate students. Teachers will also love to use this book to illustrate the writing process.
