Board book ed.
"David McPhail's delightful animal characters and slyly humorous illustrations have won him many young fans. Now this warm, funny picture book-his first about Emma-is available as a sturdy board book, perfect for little hands. One morning Emma gets up early to watch television. But the TV won't work. No one can fix it-not Mom, not Dad, not even the repairman. Neither can a balloon or a song or playing horsey fix Emma's disappointment. But then Emma's mother reads her a book. "Read it again," says Emma. "And again." And when Emma's father finally realizes what's wrong with the TV-it was just unplugged!-Emma is too busy reading to care. The power of books to enthrall has rarely been presented in such a clever, simple way for the TV-savvy preschool set."
