9780099210221: Mrs.Armitage and the Big Wave

Surf’s up! Mrs. Armitage and her dog, Breakspear, paddle out to surf the Big Wave. Soon the kindly Mrs. Armitage notices that Breakspear’s little legs are getting tired--so she swims off and returns with an inflatable desert island for him to rest on. Then she notices that Breakspear looks a little hot--so she swims off again and brings back an umbrella. Soon this silly pair is loaded down with flags, a horn, megaphones, and lots of other gear. What will they do when the Big Wave finally arrives?

About the Author:

No Bio

From Booklist:

Ages 4^-7. After arriving at the beach with a surfboard, Mrs. Armitage and her dog, Breakspear, swim out and wait for the Big Wave. But Breakspear's legs get tired paddling, so Mrs. Armitage swims back to shore to buy him an inflatable island. After more waiting, she decides that they need a hat and an umbrella for protection against the sun, so she swims back to get them. More trips are needed to procure a good stock of provisions, a wind sock, a string of flags, a horn, and a megaphone. When the Big Wave finally comes, they ride it in style and rescue a little girl named Miranda on their way to shore. The sunlit colors of Blake's palette, the carefree informality of his ink drawings, and the mannered formality of Mrs. Armitage's speech make this a treat to read aloud. Children will want to stop and savor the double-page spread showing the wonderful, impossible, inevitable triumph of Mrs. Armitage, Breakspear, and Miranda as they do the Waikiki flip under the curl of the Big Wave. Pair this with M. K. Brown's Let's Go Swimming with Mr. Sillypants (1992) for a wacky story hour. Carolyn Phelan
