Lucke, Deb. Sneezenesia. 2010. Boston: Clarion Books. ISBN: 9780547330068.

Sneezenesia is about a boy who sneezed so hard he forgot a lot of stuff, like his own name. He also forgot what his mom looked like. He sneezed so hard he forgot where he was and how he got there. He sneezed so hard that things he learned came out of his nose like an "eight," then a "six" and then a "two." He sneezed Pilgrims planting corn and a hanky's worth of Presidents. He sneezed all of his thoughts out, but how will he get them all back in? The illustrations are mostly on black backgrounds and some of it rhymes. I can't pick one favorite part because I liked it all.
