A little bird just wants some peace and quiet--but he's about to get a whole lot more than he bargained for in this clever picture book debut, in the tradition of Jon Klassen's I Want My Hat Back .

It's a beautiful, sunny day in the swamp when a little yellow bird settles down on a rock--only to be interrupted as first a heron, then a frog, then a turtle ask to sit on the rock with him. As each animal says "pardon me," the little bird's replies get grumpier:

"I suppose I can't stop you."
"It's already crowded, don't you think?"
"Sure, the entire swamp's here already. Why shouldn't you be, too?"

When a fox comes by, the bird finally loses his cool. But it just so happens that fox showed up for a reason, and the little bird's outburst leads to a surprise ending you'll want to read again and again.

Brief text with great voice and illustrations. Kids and parents alike were laughing out loud in preschool story time.

Pardon Me! emphasizes the importance of listening when others are speaking. A fun read aloud for preschool-K. Use it as part of a grumpy theme or, as I did, an alligator theme!

Great for fans of "This is Not My Hat"!
