Reviews

"A story of a sticky situation bursting with laughs, On Account of the Gum is a hilarious book from Adam Rex. The deadpan narrative voice in this book and the building chaos with each attempt to remove gum from the main character's hair will keep kids chuckling and asking for more. It is reminiscent of the old nursery rhyme, There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly, except no one gets eaten . . . and it's about gum . . . and the only old lady in it winds up stuck in the main character's hair. So maybe it isn't much like the old nursery rhyme at all. Don't chew it over. Just buy the book." -Ryan T. Higgins, bestselling author/illustrator of the Mother Bruce books and We Don't Eat Our Classmates


"Adam Rex is one of the best writers making picture books today, and one of the best illustrators making picture books today, and On Account of the Gum just might be his best picture book yet. It's perfect. You should read it." -Mac Barnett, New York Times-bestselling author of the Caldecott Honor books Sam and Dave Dig a Hole and Extra Yarn


"In his first work of nonfiction, Adam Rex bravely shares his harrowing experience of gum-chewing gone horribly wrong. What? On Account of the Gum is not a true story? Oh. Well, then it's just plain hilarious and any human will love it!" -Laurie Keller, Geisel Award winning author-illustrator of We Are Growing
