Dr. Xargle's Book of Earth HoundsAuthor: Jeanne Willis
Illustrator: Tony Ross (on JOMB)
Published: 2002 Andersen Press (on JOMB)
ISBN: 1842701703

Full of understated misinterpretations and over the top Tony Ross illustrations, this book is as hilarious for adults as it is for children. If your library doesn’t have a copy, we suggest swimming to the U.K. to find one. It’s worth the trip.

Our family was introduced to Professor Xargle with his very informative book about Earthlets. Our family loves this series, they are very funny and, I think, show kids great examples of how to “think out of the box”. Great work guys! Charles
