"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.

Drip
Drop
Plip
Plop
Pitter
Patter
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.

Sounds of water (onomatopoeia) with pictures of a cute fox in the forest. Appropriate for story time. Ages 4-8.

Read this book twice: once as a "picture walk" observing and discussing the illustrations, then again by creating the sounds of the rainstorm as you read the onomatopoeiac text. Add a rainstick, and you've got a perfect sensory experience for storytime!
