Good News, Bad News

A charming picture book about friendship and looking for the bright side: “This offering is, to borrow the rabbit’s two words, good news.” —The Horn Book Magazine

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 a text with remarkable flair that is both funny and touching, and pairs perfectly with his energetic, and hilarious, illustrations.

Good news: Kids will want to read this story again and again!

“There really isn’t any bad news about this delightful book.” —Bookends, a Booklist Blog
