About the Book
Boogers are funny. It’s funny to say, they're funny to look at, they’re even good to eat. So when Mommy wipes his boogers, Max is so furious, he jumps in the trashcan looking for them--and lands himself at the city dump!
“I’ll never find my boogers now,” Max laments, surveying the mountains of trash. Then he meets Trashman--an eccentric trash heap--who reminds Max that sometimes something really bad can turn into something really, really good. Besides, when it comes to boogers, there’s always a next time. Ah... AHHH… CHOO!
I Want My Boogers Back! isn’t just another book about boogers. This whimsical journey tackles power struggles, ownership, and the need to say goodbye on your own terms.
