Colds travel from person to person, so one little boy imagines all the places his cold might visit after it leaves him. This little cold germ rides the school bus, climbs mountains, sails across the ocean, and visits every continent before it reaches its final destination- right across the hall in his sister's room.
Nora Krug's bright, bold artwork makes for a very colorful travelogue, and Molly Rausch's funny story of a global expedition also celebrates imaginative thinking.

“On Wednesday, my nose was running” begins this title, narrated by a young boy who stays home with a cold, and each spread describes the phases of being sick, illustrated in colorful, digitally-enhanced cartoon artwork. By Sunday, the boy’s cold is all gone, and he wonders where it went. Comical pictures show the cold as a big green monster with a long red nose and pink eyes in scenarios around the world: “Last summer, it visited my aunt in Iowa. She fed it chicken soup and kept it in with a book.” Could it be climbing mountains in the Alps? Making a whale sneeze in Antarctica? Stuck at the airport? “It does get to see a lot of people and places,” says the boy, but in the end, the cold is back home and just down the hall with his sister, who needs a Kleenex. Young children may not get the parody in each scene, but they will enjoy the global adventures and comical nonsense. Preschool-Grade 2. --Hazel Rochman
