Synopsis

Synopsis

Here's a book that will get the whole family laughing. When a large family of ferrets and their precocious baby take a chaotic trip to the supermarket, mom can't keep track of the groceries, the shopping cart . . . or even the kids! Baby Edwin tries to help, but everyone thinks he's just babbling. Little do they know that he really has all the answers.

Full of fun-to-say nonsense words this is a perfect storytime book and a great read-aloud. April Stevens, author of Waking Up Wendell, is accompanied by Ezra Jack Keats Award winner Sophie Blackall for a match-up that is sure to delight.

Praise

Review, The New York Times Book Review, June 5, 2011:
“Blackall’s softly colored illustrations manage to make even stretched-out rats look adorable.”

Starred review, Booklist, May 15, 2011:
"Stevens’ spot-on story about every mother’s nightmare, the group grocery-store shop, is matched by Blackall’s delicious art...This is a book that’s clever in every sense of the word: skillful, original, and witty."

Starred review, School Library Journal, July 1, 2011:
"Don’t miss this hilarious shopping trip."
