Huck Runs Amuck! by Sean Taylor - ESSENTIAL

Taylor, Sean Huck Runs Amuck! illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds 48 pg. Dial BFYR, 2011. PICTURE BOOK. $16.99. Huck the goat is completely CRAZY about flowers. But sadly, so are the other goats so Huck is forced to go far and wide to curb his flower craving. Again and again Huck is thwarted in his attempts to eat the flowers he finds. But when he finally has the chance, will he really go through with it or will he choose to save the day?
The illustrations in this story are sensational! They are bright and whimsical and silly, just like Huck. The text features a repetitive rhyming refrain that is so fun to read aloud. And the way the rest of the text is written makes it a fun, interactive read aloud. Even the font flows well with the story. Kids will love the rollicking, crazy antics of Huck! EL-ESSENTIAL.
