I just read the picture book "The Incredible Book Eating Boy" by Oliver Jeffers and I loved it. My 6-year-old son loved it too. Which is a big endorsement considering there were no monster trucks or tractors in it. I loved the collage illustrations and it inspired me to try my hand at a collage-y type thing. I guess it's because I'm a mom, but this was the first thing that pops into my head when I hear emergency.
