Whoops! by Suzi Moore & Russell Ayto

I love picture books with a sense of fun and silliness.

They made great read alouds when I was a preschool teacher.  
Whoops! is one of those books.

Fun rhyming & onomatopoeia make for lots of interactive, noisy moments as three animal friends keep getting the wrong sound after a witches spell.

The repetitive element gives great “oh no what will happen this time” suspense which makes the surprising twist at the end even more pleasurable.

Ayto’s simple but captivating illustrations are lovely – I’m always partial to rich earthy colour palettes. The dead-pan expressions on the animals faces add to the humour of the text.

I loved this topsy-turvy, chaotic story – it was great fun from start to finish.
