Huck Runs Amuck!

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Meet Huck. He loves flowers. FLOWERS, FLOWERS, FLOWERS. And he'll do whatever it takes to get a mouthful: climb the highest mountain, walk a tightrope, even defy speeding trains! It's true, he can't resist! But when his mad dash up a church spire is mistaken for a heroic attempt to save Mrs. Spooner's flowery hat (rather than a determined effort to eat it), Huck has a crisis of conscience. Can anything deter this goat from his gastronomical bliss?

For fans of Skippyjon Jones and Click, Clack, Moo comes an all-purpose, year-round kid-pleaser that will have kids shouting, laughing, and clapping along. This goofy goat also advocates a subtle lesson in setting aside your own desires for the greater good of others. With a heart to rival his appetite (and that's a BIG appetite!), Huck is not to be missed.

Review:

"With buckteeth and goggle eyes, Huck the goat is a flower-devouring hero with his share of ups and downs: up a precarious mountain and (falling) down to the village below, up a church spire to eat a flowered hat and (after a change of heart) down to return it to the grateful owner. In a departure from his more gently inspirational books, Reynolds proves that his loose ink-and-watercolor illustrations can adeptly convey action — and broad comedy — as he and Taylor play up the twisty misadventures that befall Huck. Each event is accompanied by interactive prompts ('UH-OH... he's not going to eat Mrs. Tuppleton's flowery underpants, is he? He is! He can't resist!'). Both author and artist play up the humor throughout; instead of grabbing flowers after a near-miss with a train, Huck ends up with 'something else' in his teeth — a roll of pink toilet paper. Taylor's mainly unrhymed text switches to verse whenever Huck makes a grab for his beloved flowers: 'He's up on the bridge without hesitation/. He's a clickety-clackety, climbing sensation!' The repeated exclamations are sure to have young readers joining in. Ages 5 — 8. (Apr.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWxyz LLC)
