A Crazy Day at the Critter Café by Barbara Odanka

Odanaka, Barbara A Crazy Day at the Critter Café, illustrated by Lee White. McElderry (Simon), 2009. $16.99. PICTURE BOOK. The Critter Café is nice and qiet until a bus load of rude animals breaks down outside and all of the animals pile into the café, making demands and acting wild and crazy. The chaos in the café is a visual treat and the rhyming text is a grand accompaniment, but the ending left me a little flat. EL – OPTIONAL. Cindy, Library-Teacher.
