The Terrible PLOP: PB Review & Illustration How-To

Last weekend, my 5-y-o nephew and 3-y-o niece visited. I left a stack of picture books on the coffee table. Out of 20 books, The Terrible Plop was the big hit. It’s a perfect read-aloud with fun rhythm and rhyme.

Illustrated by Andrew Joyner
Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2009
Theme: don't follow the crowd

Summary
Here is the story
Of the Terrible PLOP,
With a bear and a rabbit
And a hop hop hop.
But what is the PLOP?
And where does it hide?
Open the book
And look inside . . .

The Story begins
Six little rabbits
Down by the lake
Munching on carrots
