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
