Moon loves to make her best friend, Ollie, laugh. On this particular day, however, her favorite gags aren't doing the trick! The two make a bet on whether or not Moon's crazy antics will be enough to bring back Ollie's usual ha ha's, hee hee's, and ho ho's. Silliness ensues in the form of a playful day in New York City involving wacky dancing, funny lips sounds, and even a troupe of chicken mimes! Photographic backdrops set the scene for this wonderfully absurd adventure. Will Moon make Ollie laugh before the last page? Fuhgeddaboudit! One thing is for sure—delighted readers will be giggling every step of the way!

School Library Journal, May 2012:
"Kids who know the city will take pride in recognizing the landmarks, yet unfamiliarity with it doesn’t detract from the story. Bright cartoon drawings superimposed on the photographs bring to mind the style in Mo Willems’s Knuffle Bunny. A must-have for most libraries but especially those in New York and surrounding areas."
