Children will love the rhyming words and outstanding illustrations in this children’s picture book: I Have to Call Paul! Author Corey Lohan has created a guessing game between a mother and her son. He needs to call Paul, but the mother can’t remember who Paul is. She makes all kinds of guesses, but none of them are correct. The fun artwork will draw children into the book, and the rhyming silliness will keep them entertained. I can’t get over how many chores and activities she accomplishes within the pages of this picture book: fixing the car, lifting weights, playing baseball, and doing household chores. I think teachers will like this story as much as students.
Hilarious illustrations will attract children to I have to call Paul!, but the story and the mom’s activities will keep them interested. Artist Valerie Peehenyk paints a lot of drama into her art with emotion, sweat, and action. She overemphasizes the antics, which adds to the book’s silliness. Even the cat is in most of the illustrations and displays emotion. Author Corey Lohan gives us a rhyming and silly story that children—and their parents—will enjoy reading. Mom keeps trying to figure out who Paul is while doing household activities in this fun story. I think all school and public libraries should include this book on their shelves. Great story plus outstanding illustrations equal a truly classic book. The surprise ending will have you reading I Have to Call Paul! again and again.
