Good News, Bad News by Jeff Mack


Good News, Bad News by Jeff Mack

Good news, Rabbit and Mouse are going on a picnic. Bad news, it is starting to rain. Good news, Rabbit has an umbrella. Bad news, the stormy winds blow the umbrella (and Mouse!) into a tree. So begins this clever story about two friends with very different dispositions. Using just four words, Jeff Mack has created at text with remarkable flair that is both funny and touching, paired perfectly with his energetic and hilarious illustrations.


Young listeners are certain to clamor for this one again and again . . . and that is good news. - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
