Description

“Who’s on first. What’s on second. I Don’t Know’s on third.” One of the classic comedy sketches of all time is now transformed into a priceless picture book—and it’s a great read for kids of all ages. Follow the mistaken identities, confusion, and lots of laughs as Rabbit and Bear act out this scene. The book will appeal to Abbott and Costello fans, baseball fans, and anyone who enjoys funny banter-driven picture books. Illustrated in full color with slightly retro stylized illustrations.

“The book is stunning ~ dad and Bud would be proud!!”—Chris Costello, Daughter of Lou Costello

Publishers Weekly Review

Nov 19, 2012 – “Who’s On First?” is one of the crown jewels of our comedic cultural heritage, so a tip of the hat to Martz (Dear Flyary) for introducing a new generation to its glories. With source material so good, can any adaptation live up to expectations? Maybe not, but Martz does a solid job of translating the skit to picture book form. Abbott’s players with “some funny names” receive actual personas (Who is a snake, What is a blue dog, I Don’t Know is a chicken), and Martz breaks down the story into comics-style framing and speech bubbles. The rapid-fire rapport between Costello (a plump white rabbit) and Abbott (a big brown bear) is drained of some of its manic energy, and Martz’s stylized digital characterizations also dial down the real joy (and meta-meaning) of the skit: Costello’s high-pitched, escalating agitation in the face of Abbott’s gravel-voiced rationality and authority. So here’s the plan: play one of the many versions of the skit available online. Once those amazing voices and rhythms are ingrained in readers’ minds, read the book aloud. And be prepared to turn the pages—fast. Ages 7–up.
