KIRKUS REVIEW

Kipper, the perky black-eared pup, returns in a lift-the-flap salute to soggy weather. With the help of some rainy-day friends, he explores which animals enjoy the wet weather. From frogs to snails, readers lift the flaps to unveil a myriad of creatures that relish the damp. Each spread contains a question on one page with the answer, lurking beneath the illustrated flaps, on the other. The content of the questions is simple enough to engage the young children—tell what you do in a puddle, identify which animal in a pond likes the rain, etc.—and right on target for preschoolers just beginning to hone their observation skills. The clean, rounded lines of the drawings are signature Inkpen (Kipper and Roly, p. 941, etc.) while bold splashes of color enliven the simply rendered pages. Kipper, as charmingly endearing as ever, is joined by a parade of adorable pigs, ducks, frogs, and others to beguile readers. A cheerful tale to chase away the rainy-day blues and encourage youngsters to don their foul weather gear and make like the ducks. (Picture book. 2-5)
