Chu's Day

by Neil Gaiman
illustration by Adam Rex


Chu is a bear with a problem. Mom and Dad worry about it, Chu worries about it. It's just that when he sneezes . . . not now, but maybe . . . no, not yet. Oh no, now! The fine detail of the Rex's illustrations enhance Gaiman's building suspense and gives kids a whole tableau of animals and action to pore over when they reach the uproarious climax. As a bonus, readers can follow the smallest character, a snail, as he keeps popping up in each illustration.
