Simply RidiculousBook - 1995
In a village far, far away, there lives a rather silly young man named Willy. Impatient to know whether his unborn child will be a boy or a girl, he seeks the advice of the Wise Old Man. Foolishly impressed with the man's response -- the baby will be a boy or a girl -- Willy returns with a second question. As he races home with the whispered answer in his hand, he trips -- and the answer is gone. From there, things go from silly to ridiculous! Energetic illustrations by award-winning Russ Willms give this folktale a ridiculous twist.
