KIRKUS REVIEW

The view through a window during a three-day rain -- of birds, a cat, a dog, a paper boy on his bike, a woman with a flower garden -- all of them happy because of the rain. The housebound onlookers, a small boy and girl, envy them all, sure that their mother won't let them get wet -- until Mother herself suggests that they go out to play. The uneventful little story might fall flat without Ardizzone's soft, monochromatic pictures on every page; as it is words and pictures blend nicely and easily to convey an inside view and a physical awareness of the everpresent rain.
