Sometimes it's fun to get wet. And sometimes it's not.

This is a thoughtful exploration of the ways to get and be wet by children's book author Carey Sookocheff-from puddles and pools, to puppydog kisses. A boy describes how he gets wet at the swimming pool, at the playground, at home. Emotionally resonant and carefully observed, with a gentle bedtime ending, this is a poetic celebration of wetness-and childhood.

Carey Sookocheff is the writer and illustrator of such picture books as Wet and Solutions for Cold Feet and Other Little Problems. She lives in Toronto with her husband, two kids, and their dog, Rosie.

Editorial Reviews

"There's gentle humor, compelling (but comfortingly minor) angst, and a loving family to keep the boy safe through his adventures. An intriguing approach to exploring a familiar natural phenomenon, this will appeal to thoughtful young listeners who may want to share their own experiences in response." -Kirkus Reviews"There's something comforting about this slow, methodical laying out of possibilities. The point is not to convey knowledge or demonstrate cleverness; rather, it's an exploration of how we come to know what we know. . . A calming book for the end of a long day." -Publishers Weekly
