A Bit More Bert

Allan Ahlberg. Farrar Straus Giroux, $16 (32pp) ISBN 978-0-374-32489-6

Collaborators on The Adventures of Bert, Allan Ahlberg and Raymond Briggs team up for a second round of silliness in A Bit More Bert. Cheeky chapters introduce absurd scenarios (in ""Bert's Dog,"" Bert takes his dog, also named Bert, for a walk; in ""Bert's Chips,"" the boy shares his snack with Grandma Bert, Baby Bert and Bert the dog); the unadulterated text and comic strip-style illustrations play up the slapstick humor.
