Product Details


Full of fun and sure to evoke giggles, meows, bowwows, and squeaks.
—Kirkus Reviews

Readers will be tickled by British author Moore’s heady cocktail of onomatopoeia and rapid-fire rhythms (“There was a bang! and aclang! and a thundering sound./ Then the tumbledown house turned around and around”). Ayto’s (A Very Pirate Christmas) quirky drawings and totemic characters are equally wonderful…
—Publishers Weekly

Be prepared for an active and boisterous read-aloud with animal noises, movement, and a funny twist at the end.
—School Library Journal

Colors pop in the stylized mixedmedia illustrations, which effectively incorporate the story’s text. The book’s rhythm and repetition, along with its many animal sounds, make it an ideal read-aloud.

By the end, readers will be able to join in with the text and add the animal sounds – making the book a humorous participation selection. The simple illustrations are made with mixed media, but the main focus is on the humorous text.
—School Library Connection

A hilarious rhyming story perfectly complemented with very funny illustrations and a surprise ending, “Whoops!” is certain to nudge children toward the “I Love Books and Reading” camp.
—Books to Borrow…Books to Buy (column from Kendal A. Rautzhan)
