The Book of Rules
A Picture Book
Author: Brian Gehrlein; illustrated by Tom Knight
An interactive picture book with dynamic illustrations, in which readers have to follow the rules or risk a run-in with a monster—with a gentle approach to mindfulness along the way.
Beware! This book has rules. You must follow all the rules. If you break the rules . . . Dennis the monster will eat you. And you don’t want to be Dennis-food—do you?
With a laugh-out-loud, interactive style, The Book of Rules invites you to get your sillies out before it’s time to focus and listen to directions. And you better get started, because Dennis can’t wait to eat—or, um—meet you!

“This fills the bill for teachers or librarians looking for an active storytime choice . . . A guidebook that many kids won’t mind following.” —Kirkus Reviews
