Guys Read: Funny Business

This collection of short stories is the first in a new series edited by Jon Scieszka, author of The Stinky Cheese Man, The True Story of the Three Little Pigs, and other hilarious tales.  These ten stories are by some of our favorite authors, and the book even includes a brief bibliography for each author.

Some of the stories include:

  • a boy who will do anything for the chocolate adventure of a lifetime!
  • a series of letters between a seemingly unconcerned kid and a surprisingly snarky author.
  • a homicidal turkey!
  • a boy who's parents give his bedroom to a particularly disgusting biker.
  • and a really disgusting, but hilarious story about a boy who will do anything!
If you enjoy Funny Business, you should also try Guys Read:  Thriller and Guys Write for Guys Read.

Check out the Guys Read website for more info about the series, including upcoming publications, additional recommendations, and lots of other guy friendly stuff.
