SOMETHING'S COMING! by Richard Edwards


Email this review


A surefire ribtickler for older toddlers. Frog, Elephant, and Little Rabbit nestle cozily in their filing cabinet drawer, until Elephant wakes up and warns them that ""something's coming."" His sleepy companions obligingly climb out and help him search the bedroom, finding nothing. What's coming, readers soon witness, is a couple of sneezes that knocks Elephant's friends off their feet. Frog and Little Rabbit pick themselves up, and the three go paw in paw back to bed. Using pastel crayons that leave the paper's texture visible, Kubick places her soft-looking figures in a toy-strewn, moonlit room, sometimes narrowing the focus to the bed/drawer alone for a cozy, comfortable effect. Simple, repetitive text.
