Up! Tall! and High! by Ethan Long

Up, Tall and High reads almost like a funny comic because the economical text is entirely in speech bubbles. The quirky birds in the book enjoy one-upping (literally, ha!) each other while conveniently making comparisons about height and distance. A few large flaps are also used for great comic and dramatic effect. This is one of the few books that have made my son burst into laughter, so the humour seems to be spot-on for its intended audience.
