More than one million copies in print

More than one million copies in print. Daniel Quinn, well known for Ishmael – a life-changing book for readers the world over – once again turns the tables and creates an otherworld that is very like our own, yet fascinating beyond words. Imagine that Nazi Germany was the first to develop an atomic bomb and the Allies surrendered. Subsequent works, such as The Story of B and My Ishmael, expanded upon his insights and teachings, but only now does he finally tackle the one question he has been asked hundreds of times but has never taken on: "How do you do what you do?"

Work, Work, Work is the story of an industrious gopher whose lifework is to burrow from dawn to dusk under an enchanted land that he never sees. While he grumbles about his unceasing labors, the morning sky is spray-painted from a dirigible (and the sun gets a drop of blue in its eye), two UFOs from different planets meet for a strange exchange, an enormous octopus-like creature (who has just come from laying waste to Las Vegas) is subdued by a barrage of hats, hotdogs, and toasters, and, at the close of day, a window opens at the horizon so that a purple giant can hang the moon in the sky. Surfacing in the twilight, the gopher sighs, “Well, at least something happened. I ran into a rock!”Parents will find that Work, Work, Work, with its colorful and detailed illustrations, is something different from the usual. It’s a book that brings readers and read-to together in a highly interactive entertainment, with the child investigating and elucidating all the strange goings-on that occur above the gopher’s underground travels.

Lately my children (a son who's 7 and a daughter who's 5) have been asking to hear “Work Work Work” on an almost nightly basis. They really enjoy all the stuff going on in the background and the drudgery of the pink mole-man. The story is pretty simple, and takes only a few minutes to read, but the best part is afterward – on the last page the mole-man looks at the reader and says he wonders what it would be like to take a day off...but what would he do? This is when my children really get excited, and begin chattering over each other with advice to the mole-man – my son Jackson really wants him to take a day off and watch all the incredible changes in the world around him.

Illustrating some basic themes from his Ishmael books, “Work Work Work” deals with Quinn's rather outlandish belief that some children don't dream of growing up and building pyramids (which in modern times could be financial or commercial pyramids). And it also connects with his statements about childrens' appetite for information that interests them – my children never ask me about the mechanics of a mole digging a hole, but they do ask questions about the monsters and aliens in the book.

In his Ishmael books, Quinn frequently teaches in parables, and this story is an excellent Quinn parable for children. Its not a conventional kid story where everything's fixed in the end – the “happy ending” of this book is when our children remind us after hearing it that there's got to be more to life than work work work.

I didn't think my kids would like this book, because there are no action heroes or explosions. They loved it. They actually slowed down long enough to study each page and take in everything that was going on. Kids already live by this message -- they understand the importance of play. It is the adults who have a harder time giving up that little voice in our heads telling us to work harder, buy more things, work harder, buy more things. I highly recommend this book, especially for all the moms and dads out there missing out on life's wonders.

I was asked to read to the 4 and 5 year olds at my local day care/learning center. I read "Work, Work, Work." The kids and teachers were delighted, especially the little boy whose family is from Las Vegas:) They didn't take their eyes off of the pictures, and asked questions about them. It was a success, and I made a gift of the book (I have 2 others) for their library when I left.

I got this for my girlfriend because she does not like to read but enjoys pictures. This book is written by my favorite author, wrote Ishmael. The book is light on words and big on pictures. The book is about a mole, which my girlfriend first thought was a monkey. The mole digs all day and wonders why he does, and wonders what he would do if he did not work. In the background of his work there are many things going on. The mole does not see them because he is too busy working.

Based on Ishmael, I thought this might be a bit more than it turned out to be. It does provide some interesting scenes for discussion, but doesn't really grab you like you'd wish.

The message is good but the execution is incredibly lazy.

The book is intended for children but I'm going to share an adult review and perspective since I have yet to share it with a child so I can't comment on their impression or enjoyment.

The book arrived and I read it about 2 minutes. It is mostly pictures, illustrated by DQ himself, with just a sentence or two on each page. At the end I was left scratching my head wondering, what did I just read? I have read it a number of times since then and love the depth and richness in the simple story. It can be interpreted a number of different ways.

I've shared this book with a number of fellow MBA in Sustainable Business grad students at Bainbridge Graduate Institute. Their first impressions are often similar to mine and I enjoy asking them what they learned. Their replies and insights are always interesting.

Without giving it away or providing my analysis of the story, I'll just end the review with the question, "Why do we Work, Work, Work so darn much?"
As always Daniel Quinn delivers. Great reads for anyone alive today facing the reality of change.
He is a writer for all, with a vision that wakes the soul, mind and consciousness of all who dare pick the books up and open Pandoras Box. Happy Journey. "B" creative and learn from those who know. .....

Fast and friendly service from Amazon, many thanks.
