Description

Oops! One morning, while a pig family was sitting down to breakfast, a little milk spills to the floor. That shouldn’t be any problem at all! And it wouldn’t, except that the milk seeps through a crack in the floor and drips down to the workshop below onto a tray that tips and flips the switch on the grinder whose spinning wheel catches the loose end of a clothesline which gets wound around the leg of a table saw . . . and that is just the beginning of a series of chain reactions that lead from a little spill on the table to a giant boulder in the breakfast room! With each disastrous step depicted as only Arthur Geisert could, a seemingly ordinary incident spills out of control. They say you shouldn't cry over spilled milk, but what if it destroys your whole house?

Praise For OOPS

In the house of placid pigs, gravity is the big hero, because it makes the most things move. That's a great idea for a book.
