I could move past the butt joke with arrow pointing to the young boy's butt crack showing as he bends over to draw, but then the poor taste humor continues. Among the discolored humor are jokes about: a marker having "the runs" with the illustration of a tan marker with a tan liquid pool around it referring to diarrhea, the supplies telling jokes "what's the one thing an artist can't draw?... A good wage", "why did the paint come home from work sad?.... Because he was just canned", Why did the large painter go to the paint store?...Because he wanted to get thinner". There are also several comments with undertones referring to alcohol: The scissors saying to the glue "Hey buddy, you're cut off", "Things were getting pretty lively so we all remembered to have lots of water", a marker states "I've been dry for quite a while now... and it feels great".
In summery, although the illustrations are interesting and eye catching, the humor is often inappropriate for the target audience (young children). There are some pages that are fine and appropriate but there are many pages that include inappropriate humor: jokes about butts, diarrhea, alcohol, artists= poor wages, getting fired, overweight painters.... It is too bad because this book had a lot of potential.
