School for Bandits by Hannah Shaw
Hannah Shaw's School for Bandits is full of wit. My four-year-old just started Pre-K and is learning about school rules, so she thinks it's pretty hilarious when the teacher tells the class to burp. Shaw's quirky illustrations, rendered in pen and ink, printmaking techniques, and Photoshop, are full of detail and provide many opportunites for laughter. The twist at the end is a clever way to show that good manners aren't so bad at all. This is a great choice for a funny, read aloud.
