Everything Under a Mushroom

Everything Under a Mushroom

If children were small enough to fit under a mushroom, what would they do? Everything and anything that’s fun to do!

This delightfully whimsical book about a tiny under-a-mushroom world is full of fanciful goings-on as the little inhabitants let their imaginations soar.

Rhyming words on every page suggest the games they play. They smile and laugh and pretend they are cows… They set up a little town, complete with a pizza stand… They watch the moon come up and pretend they are little stars… They become flowers in a garden who greet a beautiful morning.

It’s all wonderful nonsense, and just the kind of “let’s pretend” fun that appeals to kids. Even the tiniest readers (and listeners) will be enchanted with this very special world.

Ruth [Krauss] broke rules and invented new ones, and her respect for the natural ferocity of children bloomed into poetry that was utterly faithful to what was true in their lives.
—Maurice Sendak
