Hilarious picture book showing how one event can lead to all sorts of trouble!
Shawn Byous grew up in a small town in Indiana. He has been drawing for as long as he can remember. He has illustrated over 3,000 T-shirt designs for major retailers and has worked for Nike, Tony Hawk, Toyota, and Disney. He enjoys mountain hiking and spending time with his wife and three kids.
Byous explores the domino theory-and they all fall down-to comic
effect. . . .The action is continuous, the energy level is in the
red zone, and the colors are strong (more pleasing than garish). .
. .Byous is also a master of the motion line-almost everything here
is jittery or zipping or crashing-and all the little symbols that
help readers feel part of the action, like the lightning bolts and
stars that attend the mashing of a toe into a chair leg early in
the morning. An eye-tickling, cacophonous vocabulary builder. *
