FEATURED EBOOK

Four silly tales of animals who love to make mischief—no matter what!

Whaley Whale is hiding. Is she on the table? Is she in a basket? We don’t know!

Moosey Moose is angry. Why is Moosey Moose angry? Because he wants to put on his long pants!

Wormy Worm is wiggling. Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle. Wormy Worm wiggles so much, he doesn’t know which end is which.

And Sluggy Slug? Well, Sluggy Slug just won’t go. Nope. No matter what we do, he just won’t go.

In these short stories from master illustrator Chris Raschka, four funny animals will do as they please—even if it means wiggling all day!

ABOUT Chris Raschka

  • BIOGRAPHY

    Chris Raschka (b. 1959) is an author and illustrator of picture books. He was born in Pennsylvania and raised outside of Chicago, Illinois. He began painting as a child but was also interested in becoming a doctor, so he got a college degree in biology and applied to medical school. On the first day of class, though, he changed his mind. Raschka began to write and draw professionally; his early books include the Caldecott Honor winner Yo! Yes? (1993), The Blushful Hippopotamus (1996), and Arlene Sardine (1998). He has won acclaim for his striking, minimalist style and his ability to tell a story with just one or two dozen words.

    An accomplished violist, Raschka has also written many books about music, including John Coltrane’s Giant Steps (2002), Simple Gifts (1998), and Charlie Parker Played Be Bop (1992). He has won Caldecott medals for The Hello, Goodbye Window (2005) and A Ball for Daisy (2011), an entirely wordless book.
