About this title


Everyday street signs act as deadpan captions for the slapstick happenings in this ingenious picture book that is hilariously told in street signs. Go!
The sign says: "Put litter in its place." But someone isn't paying attention. He drops a banana peel on the ground--and a series of comical slips, spills, and falls are set hilariously into motion. First the grocer, then the painter, next the bicycle messenger, and then--oh, no--not the baby in the carriage! An entire town turned upside down, all by a banana peel!
Caldecott Medalist David Small and award-winning author Jennifer Armstrong have created a roller-coaster ride of a picture book told in rhyming street signs that will tickle and delight readers from beginning to end, over and over again.
