When I saw the title I thought the book might not be much fun even tragic... But it turns out to be loads of fun as a read aloud. Great rhythm and rhyme along with a funny story and bright bold pictures. No tragedy at all. This will be a story time addition this year!

Read-a-louds don't get much better than this one! Large illustrations for a group read, lots of opportunity for children to join in the story with "look out, look out" and a surprisingly sweet ending make it a winner in my eyes!

Repetition and echoing will make this a fun read aloud! Also - a great reminder to stay out of the road!
