Splat!

By Roslyn Schwartz

From 3 to 7 | 32 pages

The Vole Brothers are back, funnier than ever!

In signature cinematic style, one half of the bickering, loveable duo finds himself at the mercy of a flying pigeon as it flap… flap… flaps by and then drops in, literally with a splat! You’ll want to keep your head covered as more and more splats start flying far and wide in this mischievous, universally funny story about keeping your eye on the sky… and on your up-to-no-good sibling.

Nearly wordless and told entirely through sight-gags and sound effects, this easy-to-read and simple little adventure will leave kids and parents with cheeks and stomachs sore from guffaws and chuckles at every single reading.
