PreS-Gr 1—A collection of quirky admonishments for budding contrarians. Trochatos offers children rules for successful living by telling them what not to do. Examples include "Don't start a food fight with an octopus," "Don't let a cheetah drive your car," and "Don't invite a bear to a sleepover in winter." The results of not taking this advice are made quite clear in the splashy and super silly watercolors. The humor and situations require a bit more sophistication than is typical in most board books, but readers will still enjoy it.
"Trochatos debuts with a series of gently funny riddles/warnings . . . Johnson’s carefree watercolors revel in the playful setups." Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Great for one-on-one sharing or for inciting a room full of giggles at story time." Kirkus Reviews
"Fresh, unpredictable, and squarely in a toddler’s humor wheelhouse." — Horn Book
"A raucous romp through all the don’ts of playing with animal friends." Today's Parent
"Litsa Trochatos’ don’t-instructions are most definitely delightful, goofy entertainment for all ages . . . Even more funny-bone tickling, though, are Virginia Johnson’s irreverent illustrations." BookDragon
"How refreshing and sensible. . . . Now if only all the don'ts in the world were as intelligent." Through the Looking Glass Children's Book Reviews
...delicate illustrations and ephemeral imagery.” Publishers Weekly
