Line Up, Please by Tomoko Ohmura.

From award winning author and illustrator Tomoko Ohmura comes this gem about life in a queue. Fifty animals are lining up for the thrill of a life time but you have to read the whole book to find out what it is.

Life in a queue can be a drag and it can be an enjoyable experience. The weasel wants to know what they are lining up for, the skunk accidently does what he is famous for, fox and raccoon are competing at jumping, sheep is scared of the wolf in front of her, hyena plays peek-a-boo with a baby kangaroo, zebra shakes between a lion and a tiger, crocodile yawns, rhinoceros wants to charge and then they are off.

Lined up on the back of a blue whale the animals experience a thrill on a four page spread. At the end the giraffe asks “can we do it again?”

My granddaughters loved it and so will you.
