If All the Animals Came Inside by Eric Pinder


If All the Animals Came Inside by Eric Pinder

The walls would tremble. The dishes would break. Oh, what a terrible mess we would make! If all the animals came inside, bears would run down the stairs, kangaroos would bounce on the couch, and hippos would play hide-and-seek through the halls! Join one family's wild romp as animals of all shapes and sized burst through the front door and make themselves right at home! For the last 35 years, Marc Brown has entertained generations of readers with one of the world's most adored children's book characters, Arthur. Now we're thrilled to introduce Marc to the LBYR list in a fresh new way. His delightful collage illustrations showcase a brand-new look for this beloved artist. Extraordinary artwork pairs with Eric Pinder's hilarious rhyming verse to make this the perfect book to read aloud again and again.
