    One thought on “The Absentminded Fellow”

    1. Another book I found, by accident, while trying to find read-aloud books. This was a very silly book about a very absentminded man from Portobello Road in London who does everything wrong. The Marc Rosenthal's illustrations really make the book. They remind me of old comic book art, like Popeye and Tin-Tin.

    2. This is a hilarious story about a guy who just doesn't have all of his marbles. The students will enjoy laughing at him and all the crazy things he does throughout the story. They can also be a part of the story by reciting the repeated line on every page.

    3. This story rhymes and has very silly illustrations and there is a refrain "oh that absent minded man from portobello road" that the listeners can participate with.

    4. Silly shenanigans ensue as The Absentminded Fellow stumbles, bumbles, and mumbles his way from morning til night to get to London town.
