Synopsis

Don't Slam the Door! by Dori Chaconas

This is a calamitous tale in which a slamming door begins by waking the cat and results in total and utter chaos! This amusing tale from talented writer Dori Chaconas, with its clever rhyme and warm illustrations, will entertain all the family. When the dog slams the door a riotous chain of events is set off, culminating in a grand chaos of bees, a bear, Mum's ruined yarn and Dad covered in feathers. Will that dog ever learn not to slam the door! This is a hilarious cause-and-effect story. It features a rhyming text by up-and-coming talent Dori Chaconas that's perfect for reading aloud. It includes cosy, homespun illustrations by Society of Illustrators Gold Medallist Will Hillenbrand.
