Meet the Dullards by Sara Pennypacker and Daniel Salmieri

The Dullards are boring. Everything they wear is gray. They enjoy watching (greige-colored) paint dry. They avoid exclamation marks. And they only eat vanilla ice cream — with the vanilla extracted. However, the naturally curious Dullard children, Blanda, Borely and Little Dud, are looking for some excitement. Guess who runs off to join the circus? The deadpan humor gives our kids the giggles, and the illustrations help tell the story perfectly.
