Reviews

"The animated watercolor illustrations amusingly convey the creatures' surprise as their craft founders."
-Horn Book

"The pleasant watercolors portray the animals appealingly and provide much to keep the eyes engaged; creatures peeking out from the foliage, a spider clinging to a tendril, and evidence of Beaver's lumberjack activities will maintain interest for multiple readings."
-Kirkus Reviews

"Mole is the first to accept when Beaver invites his friends for a ride on his newly fashioned watercraft. Then, the rest of the gang from Bear's Eggs and Beaver's Lodge -Hedgehog and Hare, Badger and Bear - climb aboard. It's Butterfly's soft touch that finally topples the craft."
-Publishers Weekly

"Appreciative onlookers will enjoy the stunning muted watercolor scenery-swamps, rivers, waterfalls-and the bonus details like inquisitive fish and frolicsome frogs that turn up in unusual places. An exciting ride over the rapids and the enormous weight of Bear fail to overturn the raft-but when butterfly hops on, it tips and everyone is thoroughly and cheerfully soaked. While this story is similar to Pamela Allen's Who Sank the Boat (Coward-McCann,1983) the earlier book was primarily a guessing game for younger audiences. The smallest animal being the one to cause the catastrophe is an idea that delights children, and this more sophisticated, beautifully illustrated retelling for slightly older children will be a welcome addition for read-alouds and independent reading."
