“Don’t slam the door!” pleads a parent as a boy and his dog head out to run an errand, but the distracted boy doesn't hear. What follows is a fantastical calamity of epic and silly proportions, all thanks to a slammed door that dislodges a red ball. As the ball bounces through the neighborhood, it unleashes an escalating series of slapstick events that involve animals and people thrown off course and into the air, traffic jams and near-collisions, a fire-breathing dragon, tiny alien creatures –– and a boy completely oblivious to the chaos he has caused.

Full of details both large and small, this near-wordless picture book is a riotous experience of kinetic artwork and onomatopoeia with enough havoc to last many readings. It will leave kids—and adults—thinking a second time before slamming any doors!
ADAM STOWER is a graduate of both the Norwich School of Art and the University of Brighton. He has authored and illustrated several picture books, including Silly Doggy!, and won the Norfolk Library Silver Award for Children’s Books for Slam!. He lives in Brighton, England.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a tale of consequences This is a wonderful wordless book. As a boy walks out the door and slams it, a series of mishaps occur. As each page unfolds, the mishaps continue down the street. Funny and good for interaction with the readers.
