What do all these words have in common? Upchuck, vomit, throw-up, spew, puke, hurl, be sick, purge, regurgitate, retch, egest, honk or disgorge?  Yep....you guessed it...they are all synonyms for the word we use most often....barf!  And as Kermit the frog often sings, "It's Not Easy Being Green", in a different context of course, but you get the picture. Nancy Carlson writes this book with humour and compassion.  Yes, everybody barfs, it is a right of passage and luckily we all usually recover from it.  The little girl who was chosen by the flu bug to be its BFF for a spell starts feeling really ill and her math paper gets the brunt of her chuck.  Mortification and embarrassment sets in as she realizes the consequences of such a disgusting and disturbing action on her part.  Her classmates freak, the teacher clicks into "Code Red" mode, the janitor comes in with a HAZMAT suit and special barf cleanup machine and the coveted barf bucket is now her's to claim.  Oh my.  After pick up from her parents, a few days out of commission and the ability to eat again is restored she find she's "in the pink" again.   The illustrations are expressive and full of icky barf scenarios which kids will just love and most be able to relate to.  All in all it is a very fun book to read aloud and enables you to discuss the possibilities with your child starting with, "What if you ......."?  I recommend this book for sure.
