A Look Inside Oh No!

Oh No!
Oh No!

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2-Rohmann's relief prints bring an exuberant humor to Fleming's rhythmic read-aloud. When an elastic-looking frog falls into a deep hole ("Ribbit-oops!"), a timid mouse, lugubrious loris, resourceful sun bear, and jaunty monkey all tumble down after him during unsuccessful rescue attempts. Fleming's bouncing rhymes and repeated lines-set in comfortably large, rounded text-entice readers into an enjoyable delivery complete with snarled sound effects and onomatopoeic exclamations. The repetitive "Oh, no!" allows listeners to join in with the engaging text as the animals face a lurking tiger eager to snack on the helpless group. Rohmann knows to leave swathes of open space in his full-spread illustrations, focusing attention on his expressive, energetic animals in their vibrant safari palette of bright browns, tans, and greens. In a satisfying conclusion, the refrain returns as the tiger, now stuck in the hole, asks the released animals if they will help him clamber out. Oh, no!-Robbin E.

More About the Author

I have always been a storyteller. Even before I could write my name, I could tell a good tale. And I told them all the time. As a preschooler, I told my neighbors all about my three-legged cat named Spot. In kindergarten, I told my classmates about the ghost that lived in my attic. And in first grade I told my teacher, Miss Harbart, all about my family's trip to Paris, France.

I told such a good story that people always thought I was telling the truth. But I wasn't. I didn't have a three-legged cat or a ghost in my attic, and I'd certainly never been to Paris, France. I simply enjoyed telling a good story... and seeing my listener's reaction.

Sure, some people might have said I was a seven-year old fibber. But not my parents. Instead of calling my stories "fibs" they called them "imaginative." They encouraged me to put my stories down on paper. I did. And amazingly, once I began writing, I couldn't stop. I filled notebook after notebook with stories, poems, plays. I still have many of those notebooks. They're precious to me because they are a record of my writing life from elementary school on.

In second grade, I discovered a passion for language. I can still remember the day my teacher, Miss Johnson, held up a horn-shaped basket filled with papier-mache pumpkins and asked the class to repeat the word "cornucopia." I said it again and again, tasted the word on my lips. I tested it on my ears. That afternoon, I skipped all the way home from school chanting, "Cornucopia! Cornucopia!" From then on, I really began listening to words--to the sounds they made, and the way they were used, and how they made me feel. I longed to put them together in ways that were beautiful, and yet told a story.

As I grew, I continued to write stories. But I never really thought of becoming an author. Instead, I went to college where I discovered yet another passion--history. I didn't realize it then, but studying history is really just an extension of my love of stories. After all, some of the best stories are true ones -- tales of heroism and villainy made more incredible by the fact they really happened.

After graduation, I got married and had children. I read to them a lot, and that's when I discovered the joy and music of children's books. I simply couldn't get enough of them. With my two sons in tow, I made endless trips to the library. I read stacks of books. I found myself begging, "Just one more, pleeeeease!" while my boys begged for lights-out and sleep. Then it struck me. Why not write children's books? It seemed the perfect way to combine all the things I loved: stories, musical language, history, and reading. I couldn't wait to get started.

But writing children's books is harder than it looks. For three years I wrote story after story. I sent them to publisher after publisher. And I received rejection letter after rejection letter. Still, I didn't give up. I kept trying until finally one of my stories was pulled from the slush pile and turned into a book. My career as a children's author had begun.

Rohmann's illustrations are beautiful, and fit the story wonderfully.

I know it is just a story but I didn't like the message that the ending sent.

I knew "Oh, No!" would be a story time hit as soon as I read it for myself.

This book has everything going for it: a repetitive (but fun!) story and wonderful, bold illustrations. I knew "Oh, No!" would be a story time hit as soon as I read it for myself. The kids loved trying to imitate the quirky animal sounds and the dreaded "Ohhhhhh, no!" as I read along. Eric Rohmann's illustrations are absolutely gorgeous -- they are bold and charming enough to be easily seen from an entire room of children (they especially enjoyed pointing out parts of the tiger sticking out on each page).

Sympathy for the tiger or not, the story time families and I had a great time with this book!

Oh no! A frog fell into a hole. Friends hurry to the rescue but end up in the same predicament. The ending is a cute surprise, though, for kids and parents. The rhyming and the cute made up words help hold a little one's attention, but the detail in the art is the most incredible feature of this book. Eric Rohman totally out did himself and each page is a true adventure. Children will discover something new each time they read it and the prose is interesting enough that a parent can read it over and over without going mind numb.

At the end of the book all of the animals leave the tiger stranded. My granddaughter didn't like the ending and neither did I.

The cover and end cover are all part of the story. If you flip to the back page you will see that the tiger escapes. This is a gorgeous book with something a little extra.

This is a great book to read out loud. The repetition keeps the reader and listener anticipating the next victim of the hole, and gives the listeners a part in the story. The pictures with the tiger lurking makes the reader await what the tiger is up to. The elephant is the hero and the last pictures shows that the tiger lives to torment his neighbors another day. Oh No! is an exciting tradional story with a happy ending for all.

This book is a fun read. The flow and rhythm is great. Although the ending is not your usually - So happy ever after - it leaves room for a discussion. "What do you thin happened to the tiger?" "How should the animals acted?" I loved that and we have ha d a lot of unique talks about that mean old tiger!

Bought this to read to our toddler. He seems to appreciate the illustrations.

I thought the story was going to be really interesting and entertaining. It was entertaining, however I wasn't thrilled that the resolution to the story is centered around revenge. Seems a little harsh for a children's book. Would have thought it would be a better choice if they decided to help the tiger out.
