Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The attractive design of this picture book almost makes up for its wishy-washy rhyming text. Cut-paper illustrations show a number of animals as each takes an unanticipated jump in the lake: ``A dog fell in the water. / You know what he did then? / He liked it soooo much / that he fell in again!'' To the right of each pictured splashdown is a column of three smaller pictures of the animal in mid-paddle, along with captions to contribute the sound effects (e.g., ``Dog says: ruff, splash, ruff, splash, ruff''). Panek ( A Rhinoceros Wakes Me Up in the Morning ) provides the focal point here: tidy compositions of cut papers which have been hand-colored and then assembled in such a fashion as to suggest the textures of fur, water, hide. Ages 2-5. (Apr.)
School Library Journal
PreS-One by one, a different animal falls in the water and make its own distinctive sound. The rhyming text has a pleasing and predictable rhythm to it and lends itself to group participation. Children will love making the sounds themselves-buzz, squeak, oink, ruff, moo, ribbit, etc., alternating with ``splash.'' Panek's cut-paper, double-spread illustrations are colorful and detailed, depicting friendly, appealing creatures. Sure to be a big hit in story hours.-Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo and Erie County Public Library, NY
Mary Harris Veeder
Each animal that falls in the pond--from the small bee to the large cow--makes its own sound, and Sheppard's strongly rhythmic text tells us whether or not the animal likes the water and what its sound is. The double-page-spread collage illustrations, in a style reminiscent of Eric Carle's, are topped by a large-print text, and the sounds are depicted in three-picture panels located at the right-hand side of selected illustrations. The rhymes and rhythms of the story, as well as the sometimes unexpected choice of animals, make this a sprightly, humorous read-aloud.
