Synopsis

Pardon Me! by Daniel Miyares

A little bird just wants some peace and quiet-but he's about to get a whole lot more than he bargained for in this clever picture book debut, in the tradition of Jon Klassen's I Want My Hat Back. It's a beautiful, sunny day in the swamp when a little yellow bird settles down on a rock-only to be interrupted as first a heron, then a frog, then a turtle ask to sit on the rock with him. As each animal says pardon me, the little bird's replies get grumpier: I suppose I can't stop you. It's already crowded, don't you think? Sure, the entire swamp's here already. Why shouldn't you be, too? When a fox comes by, the bird finally loses his cool. But it just so happens that fox showed up for a reason, and the little bird's outburst leads to a surprise ending you'll want to read again and again.

Reviews

A fabulous choice for storytime; pair it with Jon Klassen's I Want My Hat Back (Candlewick, 2011) for surefire laughs and cries to 'read it again, please.

... A winning, mischievous read-aloud. Publishers Weekly sumptuously illustrated The Wall Street Journal

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
