A Book I DO NOT recommend!

A colleague was deep cleaning her room for a classroom move down the hall.  Look what she found tucked in the back of a Joy Cowley no less. (BTW, I have mad respect for that incredible woman!)

The Ha Ha Powder by Joy Cowley

As much as I love Joy, this book is so.....creepy looking!  And Ha-Ha Powder?  My colleagues and I had a good laugh interpreting what Ha-Ha Powder really is!  In this "J Level" book, the powder falls out of the back of a car and everyone who comes in contact with it can't stop laughing.  I bet!

Look how depressed the clowns are when they discover they have no Ha-Ha Powder in the back of their car.  Eek! 

As I'm writing this, I googled to see the copyright date since I don't have the book in front of me.  I found this article from 2018.

What surprised me most: That any teacher would STILL be sending this book home!

Joy's most popular book that has sold over 40 million copies and is still going strong:

She has a ton of Mrs. Wishy-Washy adventures in the series that kids love just as much. But I didn't know that Mr. Wishy Washy had his own book!

Did you have a favorite Joy Cowley book? Mine was little lovely book about a woman who used items from nature to make a warm coat for herself. 

Let me know your favorite Joy Cowley book or memory you have...

Have a Happy 4th of July!
