Omni Crush: It's a Book by Lane Smith

When a electronically literate jackass encounters a monkey holding something that doesn't have any switches, buttons, plugs, or power cords, he can't quite grasp why the monkey would enjoy it. "Can you blog with it? Can it text? Can it tweet?" he asks. Lane Smith gives every bibliophile something to smile about with his latest picture book, It's a Book, cleverly reminding readers that "you can’t beat running your finger along a shelf of books, picking out a title, holding it in your hands, then sitting under the shade of a tree, just you and a book." It's bound to become a cult classic for book lovers of all ages, but for those who need a bit of electronic encouragement before you check it out, It's a Book has one of the cutest book trailers I've seen.

You can find out what Lane Smith thinks about technology, "adult" humor in kid's books, working as an illustrator, and much more after the jump:
