Book Trailer: Good News, Bad News by Jeff Mack

Compiled by Cynthia Leitich Smith

Check out the book trailer for Good News, Bad News by Jeff Mack (Chronicle, 2012)(activity kit).

From the promotional copy:

Good news, Rabbit and Mouse are going on a picnic. Bad news, it is starting to rain. Good news, Rabbit has an umbrella. Bad news, the stormy winds blow the umbrella (and Mouse!) into a tree.

So begins this clever story about two friends with very different dispositions. Using just four words, Jeff Mack has created a text with remarkable flair that is both funny and touching, and pairs perfectly with his energetic, and hilarious, illustrations.

Good news, this is a book kids will clamor to read again and again!
