Gordon, David Extremely Cute Animals Operating Heavy Machinery. PICTURE BOOK. Simon & Schuster, 2016. $18.
When the extremely cute animals try to have fun at the playground, the bullies ruin their fun again and again, making them EXTREMELY ANGRY. But the cute animals have a plan – and in the end, it may just include the bullies, too.
The animals are extremely cute and the machinery is heavy. The story, however, left me a little bewildered. It takes a child’s sense of the impossible to revel in the absurdity of the cute animals’ final creations.
