Shake the Tree!
a minibombo book

authors: Silvia Borando; Chiara Vignocchi; Paolo Chiarinotti
illustrators: Silvia Borando; Chiara Vignocchi; Paolo Chiarinotti

series name:

Mouse spots a nut high up in a tree. “Mmm,” she says. “I’m going to gobble that up!” So she shakes the tree a little to the right, and she shakes the tree a little to the left. But it isn't the nut that falls from the tree, it's Fox, who thinks that Mouse looks pretty tasty! Soon a warthog and then a bear come along with similar ideas. Little readers will enjoy the just-made-it escapes (and be happy to get in on the shaking action), only to laugh out loud when their expectations are foiled at the end.

There’s a whole lot of shaking going on — and a funny final twist — as a series of hungry animals seek shelter in an obliging tree.
