Bursting with bright illustrations and a rollicking text, this boisterous book invites readers to hoot, neigh, snort, and giggle along with a very silly baby.
Richard Lorig spends a lot of his time at the theater, designing sets, makeup, and costumes. Because he was well-behaved while growing up, he has been rewarded with a lovely wife, a clever son, and two very cool dogs. They live in Seattle.
Amanda Shepherd loves to draw kids having fun and being wild. Originally from Seattle, she now lives with her husband and Kate the Kat in Scottsdale, Arizona.
?Âª..The spreads give readers plenty of opportunity to savor his briefly unsupervised cavorting in a comic, exotic setting. Exuberant, hand-lettered text practically demands audience participation...??

?Âª...a cumulative festival of animal sounds that storytime listeners will love. Shepherd??s bright, wildly cartoonlike oil paintings perfectly reflect the wackiness of the text.??

??Repetitive elements make this a great one for shared reading. Shepherd??s exuberant oil illustrations match the preposterousness of the text perfectly, cleverly building in visual cues to help readers guess what animal might be going home with Mom. A lively flight into imagination--mothers may never look at outings the same way again.?Âª
