ABOUT THE BOOK ABOUT THE BOOK
Synopsis

Synopsis

A child’s excitement about going to the county fair is carried along by bouncy, rhyming narration and breezy illustrations.

It’s opening day at Derry Fair, and young Dinny Brown can’t wait to see the carousel, the animals, the cotton candy, and the hot-air balloon. But Mama’s baking pies for the contest and Daddy’s chopping wood to sell, and it seems as if Dinny will never make it to the fair on time! Won’t someone finish up their chores and take him to the fair? Dori Chaconas and Gillian Tyler offer a rhythmic read-aloud that celebrates the delights of the county fair, culminating in a bustling panoramic gatefold that lets readers explore along with young Dinny.
