Little, flat Sonny Shivers and his family only know it’s cold and dark where they live, and whenever the earth quakes, a monstrous hand, reaching forth in a great flash of light, snatches away part of their landscape —Buttery Cliffs, towering Mt. Ketchup . . . and with the landscape goes his family, one by one, until only Sonny is left to face the monsters. Who are they? What and where is the Shivers family? Children will delight in puzzling it all out before the Shivers do. Fran Manushkin’s dry but juicy humor, spiced with food puns, carries this droll saga through shivery peril
Mama is worried. Baby has become quite content living in Mama's belly and doesn't want to come out, no matter what her family offers her -- until Daddy thinks of something to entice her to come out -- lots of love and kisses! A new colorized edition of a much-loved book that has long been out of print.
