"Big bright pictures mirror the text, climaxing with an evening silhouette when Hyena gets his just deserts."
*Red House Children's Book Award*

With the careful placement of a banana peel, a hyena with a serious case of schadenfreude sets off a chaotic series of misfortunes. Giraffe slips on the peel and skids "straight into a tree-KER-RANG!" which causes a coconut to fall on Hippo, making him step on Snake, who bites Ostrich, and so on. Hyena, ignoring his friends' indignant repetition of the phrase "That's not funny!" cackles away-until his prank lands him in a pile of elephant poop. Reynolds-who previously worked with Willis on Who's in the Bathroom?-contributes cartoony watercolors that play up the numerous animals' expressions of anger and shock. The message is more "what goes around comes around" than "be nice"-as Hyena slinks away into the sunset, the other animals, who so resented Hyena's howling, guffaw just as heartily at Hyena's predicament as he did at theirs. Those looking for a morality lesson won't find it-this story is all about the pratfall. Ages 4-8. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
