Their food is plain. Their lives are monotonous. And Mr. and Mrs. Dullard like it that way. The children; Blanda, Borely, and Little Dud want more.

Meet the Dullards is a great picturebook that will capture the attention of all readers. The adult Dullards are as boring as they come. They hope for their children to have as equally dull of a life. thankfully the children are out for adventure.

Meet the Dullards is great book in the tradition of The Stupids, which has been taken out of most storytime rotations because of the connotations of the word 'stupid'. It is good fun, and might inspire younger readers to appreciate what they have, and to step out of their normal and try something new.
