About the Author:

Karen Beaumont is also the author of Being Friends and Louella Mae, She's Run Away! which was “a fetching story told in rollicking verse” (Horn Book, starred review) that “builds in funny freneticism with every turn of the page” (Publishers Weekly). Ms. Beaumont works nights as an adult education instructor, and plays most days at her real job, writing books for children. She has two daughters, one furry feline, and lives in coyote country out in wild west San Martin, California.

From Booklist:

PreS-Gr. 1. When a dirt-and-stick-covered blob emerges from a mucky mud puddle and starts following nearby farm animals around, they jump to an upsetting conclusion: "Duck, duck, goose . . . / A coyote's on the loose! / Goose, goose, pig . . . / And he's really, really big!" From duck to goose, goose to pig, pig to pup, and so on, news of the prowler spreads in chanting verses that echo the familiar playtime game. Though fairly wispy, the plot of this read-aloud will hold up under repeat performances; the first time through, kids will enjoy the surprise of the coyote's true identity (a bunny in need of a bath); the second time, they'll chuckle over the animals' silly paranoia. Veteran illustrators Aruego and Dewey, whose stock-in-trade is chipper, cartoonlike artwork for preschoolers, capture the story's humor with their startled-looking, amorphously shaped barnyard animals.
