|Title||If Roast Beef Could Fly|
|Description||The Tonight Show's Jay Leno draws on a true story from his childhood to make a generation of young readers laugh out loud.
Little Jay's mom is maniacally thrifty, his dad is extravagant, and Jay always seems to be caught in the middle. So when Jay's dad decides that his next big "project" is going to be an ENORMOUS barbecue patio, the only way it's going to happen is if Jay, their neighbors, and Bruce, the laziest dog in America, help him out.
When the party to launch the patio arrives, there's more food than anyone could eat, and at the center is a HUGE roast beef that would do anything to get a taste of. No one will notice if he sneaks a bite, will they? That is, until Jay's plan backfires!
What is Jay's secret weapon to sample a bit of the roast beef? Will he keep his dad from finding out? And finally, what could make a roast beef fly?
|Dedication||"To my mom and dad, and
to my brother and
my aunts and uncles and cousins,
all of whom made my
childhood so safe and
so much fun"
