Altogether delightful. --Kirkus Reviews,starred review 

One rainy day in the city, an eager little boy exclaims, 'Rain!€ 'Across town a grumpy man grumbles, 'Rain.' In this endearing book, now in board book format, a rainy-day cityscape comes to life in vibrant, cut-paper-style artwork. The boy in his green frog hat splashes in puddles 'Hoppy, hoppy, hoppy!'while the old man curses the 'dang puddles.' Can the boy's natural exuberance (and perhaps a cookie) cheer up the grouchy gentleman and turn the day around?
