An E. B. White Read-Aloud Honor Book
An ALA Notable Book
A Huffington Post Notable Book

CAUTION! This book contains monkeys, alligators, and a whole lot of silliness.

You really shouldn’t be opening this book.
I’m serious.
Just put it back on the shelf.
Right...now.
You’re still reading this?
Well, don’t say I didn’t warn you...

It looks like a book, it feels like a book, and it even smells like a book. But watch out...madness and mayhem lie within! Debut author Adam Lehrhaupt urges you NOT to take a walk on the wild side in this humorous, interactive romp with inventive and engaging illustrations from Eisner Award–winning comic artist and rising star children’s book illustrator Matthew Forsythe. Warning: Do Not Open This Book? won the E.B. White Read-Aloud Honor award and was a 2013 Huffington Post Best Picture Book honorable mention and an ALA Notable Children’s Book.

This quirky, subversive creation begs to be enjoyed again and again and again.

“These monkeys are a RIOT! And their books are funny, too!” —Ame Dyckman
