KIRKUS REVIEW

A wayward proboscis takes flight and leads a young boy on a merry chase in this utterly absurd, but amusing nonsense tale. When David’s Dad sneezes furiously, his nose blows right off his face “in a hurricane breeze” and runs away. A disconcerted Dad tells David to catch the nose before it blows again. Ignoring David’s cries to “stop,” the naughty nose keeps running, leading David into a clothesline, through prickly plants, over a truck of chickens, onto the roof of a building and finally into an airplane. Every time the nose sneezes it blows out something amazing—an aardvark, an antelope, an ambulance, an alligator, an ape, an airplane and an athlete—that joins the bizarre chase. The silly verse is accentuated by equally comic oil illustrations that capture every action-packed antic of the acrobatic nose and its ensuing menagerie. This surreal rescue story should tickle tiny noses with lots of giggles and guffaws. (Picture book. 3-8)
