Review:

"The towheaded narrator and her pal Joe savor summer in all its rhythmic, onomatopoetic glory. Readers will quickly be caught up in the whimsical vibe-from dancing in the sprinkler's spritz ('Shhh shhh, shhh shhh) to sights and sounds of a fireworks display ('Tzooooooooooo bang. Tzooooooooooo bang. Climb the hill to watch the sky') to the serenade of crickets during a treehouse sleepover ('Treet-treet'). And then there are the special pleasures of summer eating: 'Chump, chump, corn on the cob,' writes Franco (Birdsongs) as her towheaded girl narrator and her pal Joe enjoy a barbecue feast. 'Crackle, crunch, munchy chips./ Watermelon, fwit, fwit. Little seeds fly from our lips.' Franco is well-matched by Middleton (Monster Pet!), whose breezy inkline, saturated colors and stylishly schematic characterizations exude a carefree sunniness. Youngsters should relish the sights and sounds of the season that this duo so ably captures in these pages. Ages 3-6." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

The sounds of summer sizzle and pop in this bouncing, swinging read-aloud tribute to the best beats of every child's favorite season. Full color.
