Our Best Book from this week's library haul: The Terrible Plop by Ursula Dubosarsky/Andrew Joyner

The Terrible Plop is The Gruffalo meets Chicken Little, the story of a strange sound that sends a whole forest running until one tiny bunny is brave enough face a scary reality, and find it not so scary at all. With its bouncy verse and tiny outsmarting creature, the story is a bit too Gruffalo derivative, but in the end manages its own particular charm. It’s got bunnies, rhymes, and chocolate cake, so what more could we ask for? And we’re still having fun reading it over and over again.

    We just checked that out from the library last week! Funny. Both of my kids liked it. I have to say that I am jealous of your daughter’s ability to read all sorts of picture books with you. Emma (although 3 or so months younger than Harriet)will only read books that predominately feature babies or young children. Sometimes animals are ok stand-ins for the babies (like in this book), but typically anything I try without babies is quickly tossed to the floor.
