Zac Brown Band guitarist Bowles (Amy Giggles) suggests that laughter is the best medicine when one is ill, serving up goofball scenarios and strained rhymes in an attempt to get under-the-weather children to crack a smile. The book mostly consists of a litany of things not to do when feeling sick, e.g. Dont pour chicken noodle soup over your head./ Its made for your mouth and your belly instead and Dont be afraid of needles or your nurse/ Shes not a wicked witch with a broom and curse./ (Nurses are the sweetest people in the whole universe!). Elkerton (How to Catch an Elf) dutifully presents each scene in bold digital cartoons, even when they turn truly ridiculous (as when a blue-haired boy in pajamas soars through the night sky with toes that have been turned into balloons), but genuine laughs are few. Most of Bowless suggestions, such as making a sickness monster face or singing a Sickness Song to chase germs away, are unlikely to offer much comfort to ailing kids. Ages 37.
