Abby Hanlon is the author and illustrator of the award-winning Dory Fantasmagory chapter book series, which has been translated into twenty-one languages and selected by the Junior Library Guild. As a New York City public school teacher, she wrote and illustrated her debut picture book, Ralph Tells a Story, which is now used widely in elementary classrooms. Abby lives in Brooklyn with her husband, twins, and scruffy dog, Caroline.
"Monsen's clever text offers both lexical fun and an important lesson: "This too shall pass."...Hanlon's busy gouache and colored pencil illustrations are full of attention-grabbing slapstick humor...Well-timed page turns will have kids shouting out the missing, but easily guessable, end rhymes...Get ready for wordplay that's giggly and fun and lasts long after the story is [over]."
*"His rhyming groove returns as aural fits and starts turn to fluid, welcome rhyme, and the whole town celebrates. What starts out as a book about wordplay turns into an inventive and giggly antidote for the bad-day blues."--Publisher's Weekly, starred review
*"Your next Best Storytime Book...It's a must-read, a hit, a guaranteed good time...Poor Chester van Chime may have lost the ability to rhyme, but young readers will lose themselves to giggles..."--Bookpage, starred review
"Hilarity crescendos as wordplay plummets, until Chester realizes we all have bad days."--The New York Times
