Good News Bad News

“Good News Bad News”

Using only four words, author/illustrator Jeff Mack creates an engaging, fun story. Rabbit and Mouse go on a picnic. Bad news, it starts to rain. Good news, Rabbit has an umbrella.

Each good news for Rabbit is bad news for Mouse.

Rabbit turns each bad news into good news but when he gets sad, Mouse must turn bad news into good news.
