The Big Sneeze

Author(s): Ruth Brown

Picture Books

The farmer is snoozing on the hay in his barn, surrounded by his dozy animals, when the fly buzzing about lands on his nose. Of course he sneezes, which sets off a long chain of consequences, until finally the terrified donkey panics and the farmer's wife shrieks at him. Ruth Brown's illustrations are beautiful and this picture book, first published in 1985, is a perfect example of the domino effect.
