Summary

“McCanna’s carefully chosen words are nearly all onomatopoeia, a cacophony of water sounds that resonates on tongue and ear, demanding to be read aloud…Beautiful.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review



In glorious onomatopoeia, Tim McCanna takes the reader on a dazzling journey as a fox seeks shelter from a rainstorm.

Plop

Pitter

Pat.




As the rain begins, a little fox seeks shelter. But then it builds and builds into to a torrential storm.



Wash! Wham!

Lash! Whirl!

Bash! Swirl!

Hiss! Slap! Slam!




Both a visual feast and a joy to read aloud, this stunning picture book showcases the power and beauty of nature.
