I found Adam Rex's blog a while ago through a series of tubes. I can't remember the exact pathway but it somehow involved THIS, THIS, and THIS. I have blog stalked (blogked? stalged?) since then. His illustrations are wonderful so you should check them out. And by the way, not having kids doesn't mean you can't enjoy some great kids books! Hey, my sister credits her GRE score of 800 in Verbal Reasoning to children and young adult books.
Also, watch this video cause it makes me giggle and I think you will too.
Hey It's About Balloons, maybe you could have an Adam Rex book week?
