Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Valeri Gorbachev reassembles the winsome cast of Where Is the Apple Pie? in One Rainy Day, a romp of a counting book. "Why didn't you hide under a tree?" Goat asks when Pig, sopping wet, turns up on his porch. "I did," Pig replies, then launches into a list of the unlikely creatures who took shelter with him, from a mouse and two hedgehogs to a trio of water buffaloes, etc. (May) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Pig arrives all wet at Goat's house, and his friend guesses correctly that he got caught in the rain. Pig explains that he hid under a tree but was joined by one mouse, and then two porcupines, and then three buffaloes, etc., also seeking shelter. Goat concludes that with so many creatures under the tree, including 10 elephants, there was no room for Pig, but "No! There was room for everyone," he says, paving the way for a surprise ending to the story. Children will enjoy counting these creatures as they appear on each spread. Pig and Goat share a quiet friendship, portrayed through the details of the pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations; near the end of the tale, a foldout spread shows all the critters sheltered under a tree. A clever, whimsical book for larger collections.-Doris Losey, Tampa-Hillsborough County Public Library, Tampa, FL Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Friends Pig and Goat are together again in Gorbachev's (Chickens, Chickens, 2001, etc.) combination friendship story, tall tale, and counting book. A soaked, excited Pig arrives at Goat's house with a bouquet of flowers, anxious to relate his rainy-day adventures. There is more to Pig's story than simply getting caught in the rain, however; he hid under a tree to get out of the rain, but so did one tiny mouse, two rhinoceroses, and so on, all the way up to ten elephants. They all manage to stay dry until Pig, in his eagerness to get to Goat's house, runs straight through every puddle left by the deluge. Goat's wry facial expressions and politely incredulous responses imply that Pig's tale might be a bit tall, but the friends clearly enjoy each other's company. Children just learning to count may not want to sit still for a 40-page picture book, but the sweet, simple text and fold-out spread showing all the counted animals will help keep readers' and listeners' attention. The loose, lively pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations add interest for careful readers, revealing events not mentioned in the text: the two friends drying off Pig, putting his flowers in a vase, and sharing and cleaning up after their snack. Particularly funny details include tail-accommodating patches on the seats of Pig's and Goat's pants. (Picture book. 3-6)

    Those who enjoyed the popular 'Where Is The Apple Pie?' will be delighted with the author/illustrator's latest - an entertaining counting book based on the repartee between Goat and Pig. It seems that when Pig went to the meadow to gather a bouquet a sudden summer shower arose. Without an umbrella Pig headed for the shelter of the nearest tree where he was joined by one small, very fast mouse. Soon two porcupines joined them, and were followed by three buffaloes. It was getting to be a pretty tight squeeze under that tree, and it was going to be tighter. Poor Pig was soon squeezed out and came home dripping wet. Gorbachev's smiling animals bring out the sunshine on this rainy day.
