Oh, No!


Oh, No!
Written by Candace Fleming
Illustrated by Eric Rohmann
Schwartz & Wade Books, c2012. 32 pages. Picture book. 

This is a fantastic little picture book, created by the dream team of Candace Fleming and Eric Rohmann. If this is not a serious Caldecott contender this year, I will be greatly surprised. Brilliant and beautiful pictures compliment a simple, but fun, read-aloud tale that will delight young and old alike.  When a tiger purposely causes a little frog to fall into a deep hole in the ground, other animals quickly hurry to the rescue the hapless creature, only to find themselves joining in the frog's fate. Will they all end up as dinner for the tiger?  Read this book and find out.
