Using only 4 words, Jeff Mack tells a fabulous story of two good friends, with very divergent world views, in Good News Bad News. If there were a glass in this story, Rabbit would think it's half full, and Mouse would think it's half empty! "Good news!" Rabbit proclaims, presenting a picnic basket to Mouse. "Bad news!" Mouse grumbles as it starts to rain. But "Good news!" Rabbit has brought an umbrella! Oh "Bad news!" The wind has picked up and threatens to blow the umbrella (and Mouse) away! The story continues in this way, as Murphy's Law seems to plague the pair, Rabbit ever optimistic that things will get better, Mouse pointing out way after way things can only get worse. When I read this book for the first time I wondered will Mouse eventfully crush Rabbit's cheery perspective? Or will he learn to embrace Rabbit's joyful philosophy? I was happy with the ending, and think you will be too! Check out Good News Bad News today and remember to always look on the bright side of life! See this book listed in our catalog
