Rabbit is leisurely eating his cabbages in the garden, when suddenly… WATER! Who threw it?? He doesn’t wait to find out: he’s too scared and has already run off! The same thing happens to Hedgehog, who laughs at it and goes searching for scaredy Rabbit.
“Rabbit, who on earth has thrown water at us?”
“Let’s find out!”
Maybe it was Hen, maybe it was the owls… Or maybe…
Tag along with the two friends as they unveil the mystery of the water falling from the sky!
Pablo Albo’s story of two innocent friends experiencing rain for the first time will appeal to young children, who will be able to relate to the wonder of discovering their world. Children will also enjoy the chance to be the authority on this common weather pattern they have already experienced. The format which bounces back and forth between narration and speech bubbles lends itself to being a mentor text, helping teachers segue their instruction into the art of writing and illustrating in various formats.
Some youngsters will enjoy this particular take on weather, especially the silly portion regarding the hen and the owls. The illustrations are bright and catch readers' eyes.---Goodreads
Translated by Dawlatly from the Spanish Erizo y Conejo descubren la lluvia, this rendering captures the charming silliness of the original story. Young readers will fall for these endearing friends. ---Kirkus
The colorful illustrations and the expressions of the characters add additional charm to the story. This would be a great story to read to a child that is afraid of stormy weather.---Youth Services Book Review
