Snoopy Mad Libs

Do you ever get the feeling that your libs are just too sedate, and that you need something wilder in your life? If so, you’re both confused and in luck, because coming next February is Snoopy Mad Libs, a Peanutsed-up version of the word game where you create a silly story simply by being able to identify and provide words from various grammatical categories. (Noun! Verb! Adjective! Adverb! Adnoun! Gerund! Hypothalamic!) This raucous family game, which combines the thrills of linguistic categorization with the joys of filling out forms, is suitable for anyone between the ages of whenever-one-starts-finding-adding-the-word-“booger”-to-things-inappopriately-to-be-funny and whenever-it-stops-being-funny (I’ll let you know when I get there.)

The volume is available for preorder, so VERB it now!
