"Dogs don't hoot. Pigs don't hoot. Horses don't hoot. Owls don't hoot." Wait a second! "Yes they do! Owls have swively necks and stay up all night, and they definitely hoot!"
In this marvelous sequel to Who Hops?, author-illustrator Katie Davis creates a game brimming with all kids' favorite qualities: animals, repetition, and silliness. Extra-bright and colorful animals fill each page, looking alternately bewildered, bemused, and miffed. Nothing tickles a toddler's funny bone so much as nonsense--toying with what they know to be true. Lions do roar, bees do buzz, and yaks do quack--hold it! No they don't! Ducks quack. Easily adapted for hours of play on road trips or in waiting room lines, and a good refresher on animal sounds, this witty book will appeal to adults as well, especially with the critters' little asides. ("I'll hoot when pigs fly!" says the pig. "Well, I could [buzz] if I wanted to," mutters the bull. "Quack? That's quazy!" smirks the worm.) Children will love the last page, in which they're all but begged to hoot, buzz, squeak, roar, and quack. Parents may want to avoid this noisy story at bedtime! (Ages 3 to 6) --Emilie Coulter
And so begins this funny follow-up to the popular Who Hops? An irresistible repetitive text and bold, bright images of animals combine in a book that is sure to have preschoolers hooting (and buzzing and quacking and roaring) loudly!
