Publisher Comments:

Theme: Getting Dressed. In a clever game of reverse psychology, Lamby Lamb is instructed not to get dressed. Item by item, he is told not to put on his shirt, his pants, his coat, or his hat. By the end, Lamby Lamb is rebelliously ready to go! Chris Raschkaand#8217;s witty, relatable humor lets children in on the joke and leaves everyone laughing!

Synopsis:

An effective, unusual 34-word story of the beginnings of a friendship, accompanied by wild and wonderful illustrations. Against pastel backgrounds, in vibrant, colorful images, an African-American boy and a white boy meet on the street. [Their] one- and two-word exchanges on each spread lead to a tentative offer of friendship, sealed as both boys jump high in the air and yell Yow!" With a beautifully balanced, economical style, the book illumines the peaks and pitfalls of getting acquainted, and puts in a good word for brotherhood as well." --School Library Journal, starred review

Synopsis:

With a mere 19 words (yo appears twice, yes six times) the author/artist of Charlie Parker Played Be Bop presents a spirited conversation on a city sidewalk that is, in itself, a complete drama. Two boys meet as strangers. One hails the other, who is cautious. The first persists. The other responds. Gradually they begin to talk and end up as friends. Full color. 1994 Caldecott Honor Book.

Synopsis:
