One clumsy kid stars in Uh-Oh! by Marion Dane Bauer, illus. by Valeria Petrone. ""I've got a balloon,/ so round and red./ I'll toss it / up till it's/ over my..."" Astute readers might expect to find a rhyme; instead, a lift of a flap reveals the eponymous refrain (""Uh-oh!"") as the freckle-faced heroine finds her balloon has burst (but the image shows it's indeed over her ""head"").
