Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2—A boy's mum sends him off to the shops to get some supplies for tea, but what happens when his grocery list gets swept away by the wind? Vincent finds out in this energetic picture book. He tries to remember what the list said ("a Bunch of Carrots, a Box of Rice, some China Tea, a Big, Firm Pear, a Tin of Peas"), but with multiple distractions along the way, the Tin of Peas quickly becomes a Trapeze, followed by a Big Furry Bear, some Chimpanzees, a Box of Mice, etc. The bright watercolor illustrations convey the perfect amount of texture and movement and will excite kids to keep turning the pages. VERDICT The humorous text makes this a perfect read-aloud for all ages and a great memory game to play with school-age kids. A first purchase for most libraries.—Brooke Newberry, La Crosse Public Library, WI

Review

"British author-illustrator Jo Empson brings her wonderfully freewheeling, kinetic style to this lively read-aloud that will have youngsters giggling and shouting out the correct items from the list."—Shelf Awareness

"Award-winning British author/illustrator Empson energetically illustrates her tale of ever more outrageous memory lapses with scribbly watercolors full of swooping action and bouncing wildlife that follow the swirling text across the pages. As much fun to read as it is to hear, and a real treat for the eyes."—
Kirkus Reviews

"With a wildly cavorting cast of characters [and] a playful text . . . this is hard to resist." —Booklist

"The humorous text makes this a perfect read-aloud for all ages and a great memory game to play with school-age kids."—School Library Journal

Jo Empson graduated from Cambridge School of Art with a Masters in Children's Book Illustration. Her background as a graphic designer has had a great influence on her picture books. Jo is never happier than when she is swept away in storytelling, whether writing, illustrating or just reading a favourite picture book (which she still does every night!).

She is the author-illustrator of Rabbityness, which was nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal in 2013 and 8 other awards including shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize. Her second picture book Never Ever, was also honored with a nomination for the Kate Greenaway Medal. Both books were nominated for Biennale of Illustration, Bratislava, 2015.
