One day at work I ate a lot of donuts. Thing is, I don’t remember how many. It was more than eight and less than twelve. I think. Not a great story but that is not important. What is important is donuts. Who Needs Donuts? That is the question and it was ably answered back in the early seventies by Mark Alan Stamaty in his book Who Needs Donuts?

Cody recently got this book from the library and it is a hoot! The drawings are super detailed and fantastic. Each page is packed with strange critters and donuts, of course. The story is short and easy and I should think that with a bit of arm twisting this would be every kids favorite book. You can read a recent interview with the author where he explains himself. Find the book and have a look, donut forget!

    This is a deceptively simple story wrapped in very complex imagery. I want to read it again!
