Do you like bad ideas or thinking about them? Well, if you like bad ideas then you should read The Book of Bad Ideas. The Book of Bad Ideas is a book that has bad ideas you really shouldn't try at home. If you try them you'll be soooorrrrryyyyy! If you want to learn more about it, I'll suggest a website but I don't know any. Maybe you should read the book.

My favorite idea is idea #11which is Jumping off the high dive with your new itsy bitsy bathing suit. I think this book belongs in a person's favorites list. I think the illustrations in this book are great. I think that they are great because sometimes it shows a person on the side and a bunch of words saying a funny comment. It's special because mostly the words aren't straight and the pictures are so funny! Every page is filled with funny pages! This book is like the book I reviewed last year Open Wide. It is like Open Wide because the pictures are sooooooo alike. This story reminds me that I should never ever volunteer to test the rope swing after my brother just put it up again.

I recommend this book to my friend Jonathan G because he thinks about too many bad ideas. I also recommend this book to my brother Andrew S because his plans for anything end up being a bad idea. I also recommend this book to Benjamin C because he is the person I know who thinks the most about bad ideas.
