Booklist Review

PreS-Gr. 1. When a dirt-and-stick-covered blob emerges from a mucky mud puddle and starts following nearby farm animals around, they jump to an upsetting conclusion: Duck, duck, goose . . . / A coyote's on the loose! / Goose, goose, pig . . . / And he's really, really big! From duck to goose, goose to pig, pig to pup, and so on, news of the prowler spreads in chanting verses that echo the familiar playtime game. Though fairly wispy, the plot of this read-aloud will hold up under repeat performances; the first time through, kids will enjoy the surprise of the coyote's true identity (a bunny in need of a bath); the second time, they'll chuckle over the animals' silly paranoia. Veteran illustrators Aruego and Dewey, whose stock-in-trade is chipper, cartoonlike artwork for preschoolers, capture the story's humor with their startled-looking, amorphously shaped barnyard animals. --Jennifer Mattson Copyright 2004 Booklist


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 1-It's on the loose. It's really big and it might be a coyote. The rhyming verses build to a crescendo as different farm animals flee from a mysterious creature, which, except for its eyes, is concealed by a pile of leaves. The illustrations alternate between close-ups of each startled beast, scenes showing all of them running for safety in a frightened mass, and views of their mysterious pursuer. The contagion of fear from the unidentified threat grows with the building intensity of an impending rainstorm, tugging readers along to a dramatic climax-and a surprise ending. Aruego and Dewey use bold paints as varied as a child's imagination to color their comically rendered farmyard animals. A suspenseful romp that will strike a chord with children.-Mary Elam, Forman Elementary School, Plano, TX (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
