Uh-Oh! by Mary Newell DePalma


Uh-Oh! by Mary Newell DePalma

Using bright and comical watercolor paintings, this nearly wordless book tells the story of a hapless little dinosaur s disastrous day. Children will be amused as they follow the endearing main character from one scrape right into another.


If young kids haven't already learned to exclaim 'Uh-oh

's guaranteed they will after reading this entertaining romp. The action begins even before the title page, when a young dinosaur kicks a couch pillow. In slow motion, it crashes into the building blocks of his siblings, and a series of childhood accidents ensues. He jumps onto a flowerpot that spills; gets a broom to sweep it up but knocks over a gallon of milk; uses a throw rug to mop up the floor; puts the rug in the dishwasher to clean it. Of course, he oversoaps the machine and bubbles erupt, dishes are broken, water floods the floor so high that he grabs onto a broken shelf and floats out the window. He picks up the pieces and returns to the kitchen, where his parents are mopping up. As punishment, he is sent to sit in the corner. But 'uh-oh'

'uh-oh, '
