Hardcover Price: $15.95
With minimal text and maximally madcap illustrations that richly reward the young viewer/listener's closest attention, Macaulay gives us five perfect strangers (most of them with animal companions) who affect - and are affected by - each other's actions in surprising, occasionally hilarious ways on a single summer day. Versatile and eye-opening as always, this veteran picture-book performer delivers a worthwhile, low-key message about the interconnectedness of all of us. It is a comic tour-de-force in which the audience's beady-eyed participation is a pivotal factor.
