This follow-up to the IRA-CBC Children’s Choice book Beach Day! is an exuberant, goofy kid-pleaser for every kind of weather.
About the Author:
Patricia Lakin lives in New York City.
Scott Nash lives in Peaks Island, Maine.
Four crocodile pals are bored with being cooped up inside, so they outfit themselves for the inclement weather and set off. They spy a pirate ship, whale, and monster in the distance, but when the fog lifts, they find that "this scary place" is actually a mini-golf park and they decide to play. The action is conveyed in short declarations: "'Smack it!' said Sam. 'Putt it!' said Pam. 'Hit it!' said Will. 'Lost it!' said Jill." Next, a shaggy black dog with a ball in its mouth approaches, and the friends begin an impromptu baseball game (using an umbrella as a bat). When they realize that a torrent of fly balls is actually a hailstorm, the clever canine leads the way to safety in a library. The crocs settle in with books related to their favorite adventures of the day. Nash's bright, expansive cartoons, crisply outlined in black pencil, detail the exploits of these befuddled reptiles. A lively offering packed with child appeal.
