A beach outing for the dog and a full day at home for the cat are skillfully interwoven in this quiet tale of friendship. Spare text describes the day's events while soft, glowing illustrations tell the real story of parallel activities with subtle humor. McCarty's design choices from font and page layout to size and inviting cover art show great attention to detail in this masterfully executed picture book.
Mouse shares his brand-new toy airplane with his friend Rabbit, and no one can predict the disastrous—but hilarious—results. When the airplane lands in a tree, the chaos only builds as Rabbit drags, pushes, and carries the whole neighborhood, including Elephant, Hippo, and Crocodile, to aid in the rescue. Eric Rohmann's hand-colored relief prints express a vibrant energy through solid black outlines, lightly textured backgrounds, and a robust use of color.
