Tyler Toad and the Thunder

Robert L. Crowe. Puffin Books, $4.95 (0pp) ISBN 978-0-525-44243-1

Tyler is terrified of thunder, until Reginald P. Merriweather Fieldmouse tells him it's just the Great Toad shaking a piece of tin up yonder. ""Chorao's bright, handsome paintings illustrate Crowe's droll tale, a boon for children who share Tyler's feelings,'' PW noted. (4-6)
