Product Details


Horácek’s bold, textured mixed-media illustrations pop.
—Kirkus Reviews

Horác?ek, usually a solo act, makes a winning team with Dunbar (Pat-a-Cake Baby), her brisk, direct prose providing sufficient personality and emotional momentum to match his gorgeously textured animal portraits: a radiantly pink pig wallows in brocadelike crimson mud; a rooster is a riot of copper and emerald feathers. A glorious, giddy group rain dance—and homage to “Singin’ in the Rain”—closes the book, showing that no cloud or mood can stay dark forever.
—Publishers Weekly

The bold, vibrant art, boisterous animal sounds, exasperating main character, and enjoyably predictable storyline can work equally well for reading one-on-one or sharing with a group.
—The Horn Book
