This book is parfait, in the literal French sense of it being perfect. It is not a dessert, please do not attempt to eat it.— Nick
A minimally worded, highly entertaining, and uniquely offbeat picture book that takes readers on a surprising wordplay journey that sort of makes sense but will totally make you laugh.
This must-read book is an innovative and deceptively simple journey of words that rhyme (or don't) with "parfait." Each page turn brings on the laughs as the clever story bounces from an uneaten parfait to seemingly random characters, including a duck, a toupée-wearing Shar-pei, horses playing "Pin-the-Tail-on-the-Donkay", and even. . . Abraham Lincoln. Throughout, bestselling artist Avery Monsen (All My Friends Are Dead) packs fun seek-and-finds, giving readers a chance to spot everything that rhymes with "parfait."
Irreverent and wholly original, Parfait, Not Parfait is a book full of irresistible layers, each one more satisfying than the last.
"The creators’ comic timing is worthy of a chef’s kiss, with digitally enhanced acrylic paintings that embrace the tomfoolery without overplaying it, and which offer additional “ay”-sounding visual jokes for close readers." —Publishers Weekly
"A fun, free-wheeling word partay." —Kirkus
