Irresistible summer fun!

Just then we heard a fella yellin??

And gulped and burped,
Then Peter spit a seed at Sue. . . .

Four friends turn a boring summer day into a rollicking, watermelon-seed?spitting adventure that takes them all the way into the town square, where everyone can?t help joining in on the fun. But when the mayor arrives, will she put a stop to it all?

Energetic, begging-to-be-read-aloud text and boisterous, hilarious illustrations combine to form a picture book that celebrates simple, good-natured mischief.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 3

Four bored children visit a man selling watermelon slices from his truck, dig into them, and soon begin slurping and spitting, leading the way for the rest of the town to follow suit. When the mayor appears and it seems the game is off, she surprises everyone and ups the ante-by throwing pies! The rhyming verse is easy to read aloud, and Manders's cartoon depictions of the townspeople provide just the right sense of fun. Though this silly story depends a little too heavily on one repetitive action to move the plot along, it can be used to supplement summer-story collections. Pair it with Kathi Appelt's Watermelon Day (Holt, 1996) and Lisa Moser's Watermelon Wishes (Clarion, 2006) for a juicy hot-weather treat.-Lisa Egly Lehmuller, St. Patrick's Catholic School, Charlotte, NC

Kirkus Reviews
This slapstick farce bounces along in rollicking rhyme accompanied by exaggerated cartoon-style illustrations featuring round-cheeked, wide-eyed characters sporting skinny extremities and outsized feet. The plot is simple: Four bored kids perk up a hot summer day by spitting watermelon seeds at one another. The action escalates when they take their battle to the village square and others get involved. The stern mayor's appearance threatens to shut down the fun until she suddenly picks up a cream pie and lets it fly. Manders's style suits the brisk text, which uses occasional typeface changes to enhance the rhythm. Although the farmer's rattletrap truck and the idyllic village setting suggest an earlier time, the backwards cap on Peter's head and a reference to "dudes in business suits" set the story squarely in the present. Light as a pie and sweet as melon, this slight story should find an enthusiastic audience with parents and grandparents nostalgic for a simpler, sillier time, who will enjoy sharing the fun with young listeners.
