Best of 2013: Children's Picture Book

The Brief Thief, by Michael Escoffier (illustrated by Kris Di Giacomo), is a picture book that made me laugh out loud at the end. It’s about a chameleon who desperately needs toilet paper, so he uses a pair of briefs he finds hanging on a tree. Walking away, he hears the voice of his “conscience” wear him down about using things that are not his, so he washes them and hangs them to dry. The twist ending is silly and hilarious!
