In this cheeky (sorry!) sequel to the wildly fun Chicken Butt!, the young jokester and his chicken muse are back, but this time they're trying to trick Mom. She thinks she has caught on to the gag, but as she distractedly does the grocery shopping, she falls victim to a flurry of jokes using homonyms and homophones--words such as "dear" and "deer," and "which" and "witch." Wordplay has never been so much fun.
A feline version of "There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly" that will simply trip off your tongue--with a shoutable read-aloud refrain! Once there was a cat, a fat, fat cat. But was that cat fat enough? NO, HE WAS NOT! He ate up a rat. He swallowed a dog. He even had an old lady for dessert (it's about time SHE got eaten!). But was that cat fat enough? NO, HE WAS NOT! The adventures of this omnivorous feline are sure to inspire laughter and have young readers chiming in with the refrain. So will children be satisfied with just one reading? NO, THEY WILL NOT!
Whatwill Fat Cat sit on? The pig? (Oink!) The chicken? (Cluck!) How about the dog? (Grrrr.) Everyone in this bumbling animal gang (understandably) hopes the victim will be someone else! Leave it to Mouse to come up with a brilliant solution that satisfies everyone, even Fat Cat himself. Filled with hilarious asides and an interactive question-answer format, this irreverent young picture book will delight toddlers who love to shout "NO!"
I went walking. What did you see? I saw a black cat Looking at me. These catchy stanzas frolic through the Australian author Sue Williams's simple, funny read-aloud picture book that tracks a crazy-haired boy's stroll through the countryside. The boy sees a black cat, then a brown horse, then a red cow, and so on, and before he knows it, he's being trailed by the entire menagerie! The Australian illustrator Julie Vivas brings the parade to life in lovely, lively watercolors--when the pink pig looks at the boy, for example, the boy sprays off his muddy body with a hose. Big type, repetition, friendly art, clean design--and the visual guessing game created by introducing each animal only partially at first--make this beloved tale a winner at story time.
