illus. by David Walker. 32p. Candlewick. 2015. Tr $14.99. ISBN 9780763668846. LC 2013957286.
PreS-Gr 1—Peep and Ducky are best friends, but a rainy-day playdate can be challenging. When an inside tent and a pillow fight result in bonked heads, they decide that that sort of play isn't much fun. So, they decide to venture out into the rain, thanks to an umbrella. But thunder and lightning pull them back indoors and then the day is over when Peep's mom comes to get him. Told with colorful pictures and rhyming text, this is an engaging story about "such good friends, lucky, lucky, lucky," who make the most of their time together.
VERDICT Children will have fun looking at the pictures, and the text works well as a one-on-one read or as a selection for a rain-themed storytime.
