Wellington's Rainy Day (Carolyn Beck)
The kids in my class must have really well behaved dogs. No one knew of the crazy things dogs do like roll in poo, eat the garbage, barf, then lick up their barf!
This story has Wellington and his friend, Honey, the cat. Wellington just does things. He can't help it. He feels guilty though! In the end though, the cat ends up getting blamed. We loved it!
All through the store Sn-oooo-re is interspersed here and there. We had trouble figuring out why at first. Then we realized the owner must be sleeping while Wellington is getting into trouble. We had a good chuckle over his antics.
...and once again, Carolyn Beck makes me laugh! Who thinks to write books like this?!
I love it.
It's a rainy day. Wellington is down in the dumps and can't resist the smell of his master's freshly made meatloaf. While his master snoozes, Welly devours every last bite. After he hides the empty pan, he eats the contents of the garbage can too. Honey, a sneaky kitty and Wellington's archenemy, threatens to tell on him. Welly's tummy begins to churn and out comes everything he has gobbled down. What a mess! But in this lively, rhyming picturebook, things have a way of turning out better than expected for Welly, and just this once he escapes being blamed for the missing meatloaf.
