MR.Frumble's Worst Day Ever

Richard Scarry, Author Random House Books for Young Readers $10 (0p) ISBN 978-0-679-81616-4
Scarry fans will relish spending a day with the bumbling Mr. Frumble, who is calamity-prone from the moment he shatters his alarm clock in the morning until his bed collapses under him at night. Preparing breakfast, the hapless pig flips a pancake onto his head; it is still there when he drives his pickle car out of the garage without opening the doors. Undaunted, he proceeds to back into his neighbor's garden (``Poor vegetables! Poor neighbor!''). Oblivious to the disasters he leaves in his wake, Mr. Frumble visits a laundromat, shoe store, supermarket, restaurant, gas station, construction site and beach. Typically, Scarry packs his latest large-format, paper-over-board volume with amusing asides (``What a mess!'') and descriptive exclamations (``OOOOOOPS!''). Kids will return again and again to the book's abundant, action-filled illustrations, energized by Scarry's inimitable brand of slapstick. Ages 2-5. (Mar.)
