Description


Slamming the screen door sets off a comical chain of cause-and-effect in this rollicking tale of a rambunctious family.

A slamming door may not seem like a big deal, but in this escalating tale, it can have far-reaching (and very funny) consequences — including a limping, yelping Pa; a scared, bee-stung bear; and a whole house plunged into pandemonium! In lively rhyme that’s perfect for reading aloud — complemented by Will Hillenbrand’s cozy, homespun illustrations — Dori Chaconas follows a pint-size narrator as she warns her family of the ever-more-outrageous effects of their actions. But despite her valiant efforts, things keep spiraling humorously out of control. Will she ever be able to get the house back in shape?
