Let's Do Nothing!

By Fucile, Tony

Publishers Summary:
Master of visual humour, Tony Fucile, explores the elusive art of doing nothing in this comical tale of two very active imaginations. Frankie and Sam have played every sport and board game invented, baked and ate batches of cookies, painted zillions of pictures...What's left to do? Nothing! But can Frankie and Sam do nothing? Can they act like stone statues in the park? (Without moving to shoo off pigeons.) Can they imitate two giant redwood trees? (And ignore Sam's dog, who's taking a pee...) Can they simply hold their breath and not blink an eye? With a wink to the reader and a true command of visual humour, feature-film animator Tony Fucile demonstrates the Zen-like art of doing nothing...oops! Couldn't do it!
