    ITEM#: 2570429

    All the animals are in a panic. The elephant's sneeze would blow the monkeys out of the trees, the feathers off the birds, the stripes off the zebra. Even the fish and the fly, the crocodile and the kangaroo, know what a catastrophe that sneeze would be. "Please don't sneeze!" they beg. . . .

    The classic story of an enormous sneeze in the marking, told in sprightly nonsense verse, has been newly illustrated in full color to delight a new generation of fans.

      I loved this book when I was a child. My Dad used to read it to me everyinght when he did not have to work. I memorized it. When my son was born I passed this tradition on to him. I would recommend this book to all parents with small childern. It is worth the read.

      This book is awesome. My kids LOVED this book as children and I have now bought a new one to share with my grandchildren. The rhyming just grabs their interest, and the illustrations are so funny. Children always join in for the "Please don't sneeze". Totally fun book!

    • Alright . . .
      Verified Purchase

      I thought this book would be cuter based on the reviews but the storyline was just okay. Not worth buying as a hardcover, but I would buy it as a softbound book if your child likes animals.

    • So basically, this book is delightful.

      I personally am a tad bit biased about this book. But even if I wasn't, this book would be one of my all time favorites growing up. The rhythem and rhyming scheme of the book is fabulous and entertaining. I love to scream "Stand Back....." everytime I read it. I remember the Patricia Thomas coming to my school as a kid and every kid in the classroom screaming that line with her as she read it. P.S. I have never heard her be refered to as "Patty" before...... I think Patricia does just fine.
