This is a great book. My boys loved it. Prior to reading the book; rock, paper, scissors is how we have come to settle many of "I'm first" "No I'm first" disputes. So they were excited to read it.

Chloe, a participant of SPL's TD Summer Reading Club, rated this book 5 stars! She thought it was interesting to read about rock and where he came from. She chose the book because she loves to play rock, paper, scissors ALL THE TIME!

A silly book on how we have come to play Rock, Paper, Scissors. The illustrations are a great addition to this story. This book is definitely a fun read-a-loud for the whole family.

This book is hilarious. I'm an adult, and I still loved it. The language might be a little lofty at times, and the full scope of the humor might be lost on really young readers ("Bow before our child-pleasing shapes and flavors, sword master!" the dinosaur chicken nuggets say to Scissors at one point), but slightly older children should get plenty of chuckles out of this "legendary" origin story.

This story begs to be read aloud complete with sports announcer style voicework. Kids will love the epic battle sequences leading up to the ultimate showdown.
