Description


*A Today Show Gift Guide Pick!*

Lucy is having a terrible day. She’s falling down a mountain. As she passes various characters—a mountain man, a bungeeing duck, and a pile of shuffling bears—she tries to ask for help. But everyone misinterprets her requests. As Lucy gains velocity, the story grows in silliness. Ending eventually in a giant, rolling snowball that lands Lucy safely at a hot-chocolate chalet. No harm done!

With a perfect blend of Looney Tunes–style comedy and breezy short text from Kevin Cornell, Lucy Fell Down the Mountain offers a simple solution to bad days: Just roll with it!

In the tradition of When Sophie Gets Angry and Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible . . . Very Bad Day, Lucy's ability to face the day head-on—and then move on—will prove itself a new classic.

"Exciting plummet into weirdness . . . Cornell’s signature cartoon style will be familiar to fans of his 'The Terrible Two' series with Mac Barnett, and the facial expressions of Lucy and her companions are bound to get kids falling down with laughter. VERDICT This action-packed seasonal cliff-hanger is the perfect choice for fans of Jon Klassen's I Want My Hat Back and other stories that lean toward the bizarre." -- School Library Journal


"Bright illustrations with vivid colors and a very expressive Lucy give this quirky, quick nonsense tale a whole lot of personality." -- Kirkus Reviews
