Meet Dog, Cat and Mouse. But what happens when the cat can't 'meow', the dog can't 'woof' and the mouse can't 'squeak'? They all head off to see the old lady in the tumbledown house of course, who will 'have a spell to make them well', but with what consequences? Suzi Moore's short snappy rhyme keeps this story moving at a pace and with the introduction of a wealth of animal noises, it can't fail to please the youngest (or the oldest) reader. It's a chaotically hilarious story, that'll have even the most sensible reader barking, bleating and cock-a-doodle-dooing! We thoroughly love Russell Ayto's minimally moreish illustrations. In this case, less is definitely more and with subtle changes to the ears, eyes and tail, the animals demeanour is abundantly apparent. (Keep an eye on the little old lady's shoes.) The prominent and vibrant changes in background colour adds to the intensity of the little old lady's spells as she continues to get them wrong and the animals end up with the wrong noises. But whoops! will she ever find the right spell? Perhaps the eccentric old lady should stick to knitting three-legged tights... * picturebooksblogger *
Whoops! is my new best favourite picture book. It's artfully written, cleverly illustrated and laugh out loud funny. Again! Again! -- Caryl Hart * Author *
Whoops! is a lovely, rhyming, beautifully illustrated story about a cat, a mouse, a dog and an old lady (who may just be a witch) in a tumbledown house. Children will love the mixed up noises that the animals make as the old lady tries to fix their sounds. -- Rach from Somerset * Toppsta - Reader Review *
