    I thought this was very amusing! Lots of creativity and silliness here. I think kids would love it.

    Not really my type of thing, but I'm sure little kids interested in the tallest, biggest, smallest, etc. may get a lot out of this.

    This is a goofy book where the author thinks of what would the smelliest, jumpiest, silliest, things in the world. The pictures are just as goofy as the words. The book is silly and is sure to bring a smile to anyone's face who reads it. The creativity is contagious and encourages the reader to think of something that is the most in the world. I like how there was a fill-in-the-blank page at the end of the book, so it gave the reader a chance to think of their own "most thing in the world".

    You can use this book to help them imagine but also obtain good vocabulary. Without pictures the book wouldnt be meaningful

    This book has many examples of adjectives and presents them to readers in a fun and silly way. Each page has a funny sentence that describes something that is the most in the world. For example, "The stickiest thing in the world is a 400,000 pound wad of bubble gum." Readers will be engaged with the book's humor and are even given a chance to create their own part of the book at the end. The last page reads, "The ___est thing in the world is ___." This gets readers involved in a creative way and encourages their own writing. Teachers could even create their own class book using the students sentences and drawings!

    I am sometimes drawn to books that teach a specific grammar element. This book does just that and that's what made me curious to read it. It plays with words like quietest, wiggliest, and smelliest. This is a great tool for a teacher. I think it's a winner with elementary kids as well because of the author's use of humor and decision to deal with popular themes like space, animals, dragons, etc. And the illustrations can definitely be called surreal which is wonderfully different when it comes to kid lit.

    3.75 starsThe last page of this book is RIPPED and missing! ARGH! So all I have is "And the highest thing in the world is .......the sky." with a picture of a sky and a space ship??So assuming I can figure out the ending, I liked this book. The cover however is a disappointment. I think I Would have picked a different picture. I liked the imagination and fun in the story. "The Smelliest thing in the world is a skunk convention" yep I am pretty sure it HAS to be...maybe a land fill...but maybe not!!

    Things That Are Most in the World is a silly book that have bizarre creatures doing outrageous activities. The story is intended to be humorous and light hearted. The last page in the book allows you to create your own activity with children. This why I would use read this book to my class on the first day of school. I would mention their name in the story and describe an activity that would be funny and light hearted. Students will be able to see that my classroom is structured for learning but within the learning I love all my students and want them to have fun in my class.

    There isn't much to this book, but it's pretty funny.Every spread has a silly picture and a description. The HOTTEST thing in the world is a dragon eating chili peppers! The SMALLEST thing in the world is a baby flea!The descriptions are pretty outlandish, matched only by the silliness of the illustrations. Sure, it's a short book - but it'll encourage your kid to think and create and imagine. That's worth the price of admission.

    I wasn't as charmed as I have been by Barrett's other books. I didn't think the examples were always so funny or even made sense (I mean -- I get why they wouldn't, but they didn't make sense in a way that works I suppose). There's a page in the back for kids to make up their own, but I feel quite certain only one or two of my preschoolers would be able to manage that. So that's for older kids, I suppose.

    Things That are Most in the World is another fun book that we discovered. Written by the author of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and it's sequel, Pickles to Pittsburgh, this book shows the silly side of the "-est" ending to words. What is the quietest thing in the world? Why, a worm chewing on peanut butter! The stickiest? A 400,000-pound wad of bubble gum. With clever illustrations to showcase these "-est" extremes, my girls giggle their way through this book everytime they read it.

    This was silly and funny. On each page, the author explains something strange that is _________________est in the world. We are going to make a class book about what we think the ______________________est things in the world are. Then, we are going to put it into our school library so other people can check it out and enjoy our writing!

    Barrett has a knack for humor. This book had my son jumping up and down with excitement and laughter. Our favorite page was the last in which Barrett provides a template for the reader to come up with their own "most" thing.The bold-colored illustrations are detailed and depict the "most" things quite well.

    This book plays with the -est ending in a repeated pattern, allowing children to predict what is coming next. At the end of the book is a page that can be copied and handed out to children, so they can make their own 'most' statement.

    Children's picture book. Read this to 2 kindergarten classes and they seemed to like it (though they probably didn't enjoy the skunk convention page as much as I did). Contrasted with "Pink is for Blobfish" for an engaging discussion on true books vs. fiction books.

    Had to read this again because I could not remember it from 2012. I still like how absurd it is - why is an ant windsurfing in a bowl of pea soup? Who knows?! The more bizarre the book, the more I like it - for me and for kids.

    This book would be a great introduction to adjectives when doing a poetry unit. You could get into grammar when talking about the -est words as well. Kids like this book because it's fun and silly. It allows them to tap into their creative side as well.

    This book is about exactly what the title says...things that are most in the world. The author describes things that are the wiggliest, the quietest, the biggest, etc. Children can come up with their own scenarios and make a class book with things that are most in the world.

    A cute book to help us all think-what would be the most anything in the world.Very creative and a useful tool to fuel our minds.The shrillest thing in my world would be my bird Hecter when he squaks.As high pitched as he gets it has to be the shrillest to my ears.

    This book does not have a story line but I do think it is a great read aloud book and it would keep kids entertained with it's wild pictures.

    This is an awesome picture book of pure silliness. I have read it to kids who giggled at both the words and the pictures. :)

    Picture Book. I would use this book to talk about quantities. It would be a good supplement to a lesson.

    This is a fun book for young children to get them thinking about different things that are the most of something. Repetitive language and a built in response activity at the end!

    Allows students to see the need for inflectional endings and even gives them a chance to respond at the end.

    Hewy loves this book right now. At the end I say "The H-y-ist thing in the world is Hewlett Alexander Dunn" and he just beams! Love it. The boys also used it for a creative writing lesson.

    What is the silliest thing in the world? This book is high on the list. It holds fun ideas and, of course, a great set of examples of superlatives.AD840L
