A Summery Saturday Morning

 
9780241137895: A Summery Saturday Morning

The story of a group of children and their dogs on an outing. What starts out as a peaceful summer morning stroll soon ends up as a slippery wild goose chase and a lot of fun.

From Publishers Weekly:

With bustling watercolors and catchy cadences borrowed from "This is the way we wash our clothes," New Zealanders Mahy (Boom, Baby, Boom, Boom!) and Young (Adam Pig's Everything Fun Book) offer a buoyant story of a walk to the seaside that takes some unexpected turns. The multiethnic party consists of four children and an adult, plus two dogs. The canines get up to high jinks as they chase first a cat, then a boy on a "rattly" bike ("Chasing things is what dogs like/ On a summery Saturday morning"). But the dogs outdo themselves when they go after an unamused family of geese. The children and their caregiver try to catch the dogs but get mired on the beach, a problem deliciously described as: "The mud begins its guggliwugs,/ Its guggliwugs, its guggliwugs./ Our sandals slide like slugliwugs/ On a summery Saturday morning." Young's happy-go-lucky full-bleed cartoons build up to a carnival-like commotion, bouncing with comic discombobulation even as they hint at the panoramic expanse of the landscape. Full of fun, on any morning. Ages 2-6.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1AA light romp by the seashore that will have children marching along with a family and their dogs as they encounter a boy on his bike, a cat, and several geese. Listeners will delight in the sounds of the language, the lively rhythm, the song-like repetition, and the pleasing rhyme and appreciate the watercolor landscapes. The lively, action-packed illustrations amusingly reflect the changing emotions of the expedition members, from exuberant anticipation to tired retreat from the mud and the geese. Purchase generously and be sure to read this one aloud.ARonald Jobe, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada
