Singing in the Rain

Written by Tim Hopgood

Singing in the Rain Synopsis

'I'm singing in the rain, Just singing in the rain. What a glorious feeling. I'm happy again!' Based on the classic song, this beautifully illustrated picture book celebrates rain and all its fun. Jump in puddles, raise umbrellas, and dance with joy through the pages of this gorgeous story. Sweet and positive in its message, with bright, eye-catching art, this book is an uplifting celebration of rain! 'Singing in the Rain' is one of the world's best-loved songs and the centrepiece of one of my favourite films. I love the song's positive message, and the iconic sequence of Gene Kelly dancing in the rain always raises a smile. As adults we tend to think of rain as an inconvenience rather than the joyous thing that it is. Next time it rains, step outside, feel the rain on your face, and give the clouds up above your biggest smile!'

With dazzling artwork that jumps off the page, the colours of the rainbow never looked prettier' (Praise for What a Wonderful World) * Huffington Post *
