Wild Rumpus is ALL about being silly! So who better to bring the silliness that beloved local author David LaRochelle and his new book 100 MIGHTY DRAGONS ALL NAMED BROCCOLI! (Even that title gives us the giggles!)
High on a mountain live 100 mighty dragons all named Broccoli. When a tremendous wind blows half the dragons away, ten others sail off to become professional surfers in Hawaii. The oldest and youngest dragons take a train to New York City to start their own heavy metal band. And a mysterious wizard turns four more into a unicorn, a werewolf, a zombie, and a tiny pink poodle. Now how many dragons are left? This wacky counting adventure is a love letter to math, silliness, and has a delightful surprise at the end that will make you want to start all over at the beginning again! Colorful & wildly fun illustrations by Lian Cho.

When David LaRochelle was little, he wanted to grow up to
be a dragon. Instead, he became an author. His many picture books include The
Best Pet of All, How Martha Saved Her Parents from Green Beans, and See the Cat:
Three Stories About a Dog, winner of the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award. David lives
in White Bear Lake, Minnesota, where he is always on the lookout for dragons.
"A nonstop dragon party . . . Irresistible." —Publishers Weekly
This wacky counting adventure by Geisel Award-winning author David LaRochelle is a hilarious ode to dragons and math, with pitch-perfect art by Lian Cho.
From the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award–winning creators of See the Cat: Three Stories About a Dog comes a funny and handy guide that explains just how (and how not!) to say “I’m sorry.”
What happens when a cat tries to be a dog? With this second wry primer, the creators of See the Cat return to demonstrate that standing in for a friend can be trickier than expected.
