All I want to do on a rainy day like today is play my game, but my mom says it’s a waste of time. The game makes my mom crazy. Angry.

She takes it away.

I take it back.

I wish Dad had come with us on this rainy, gray weekend.

Without my game, nothing is fun.

On the other hand, maybe I’m wrong about that. . . .

Industry Reviews

"Hands down, Beatrice Alemagna is my favorite contemporary illustrator. Pure magic." -- Christian Robinson, Caledecott Honor Winner of Last Stop on Market Street "Naive and childlike yet so very sophisticated. Lovely." -- Lane Smith, Best-selling illustrator of The Stinky Cheese Man "Heartbreakingly beautiful. You get the sense that she becomes totally lost in it while drawing and as a viewer you want to do the same. I think this might be Beatrice's most breathtaking work yet. -- Julie Morstad, award-winning illustrator of Julia, Child and Swan: The Life and Dance of Anna Pavlova "The name Beatrice means 'she who brings happiness.' Her work is not necessarily happy all the time-and I am grateful for that-but it is always is strong and delicate, lyrical and honest, all at the same time." -- Sergio Ruzzier, award-winning illustrator of This is Not a Picture Book "Seeing A Lion in Paris made me realize how beautiful picture books can be." -- Chris Haughton, award-winning illustrator of Shh! We Have a Plan
