It's kind of funny how a book about a boring family is anything but! In Sarah Pennypacker's Meet the Dullards, the reader is introduced to an incredibly dull family; grey clothes and home, no seasoning on their food, and a ban on exciting activities are some of the ways the Dullards keep things low key. Their children, though, aren't content with such a monotonous life and try to venture from their typical humdrum. Illustrations from Daniel Salmiri (Dragon's Love Tacos) fit perfectly with the deadpan tongue-in-cheek humor from Pennypacker. Check it out today for a good laugh!
