A water ride like you've never experienced before, featuring the cutest drop of water in all of precipitation.
Meet Drop. She's water! And she's seen a thing or two. Yep, even dinosaurs; she's four and a half billion years old, after all. Everywhere Drop flows--and she flows everywhere--she keeps things moving, making life on earth possible, and having a great time doing it. (Have you ever plummeted from a rain cloud? Or took a thousand-year nap in a glacier? Drop knows how to live right.) With delightful panache and a steady stream of funny one-liners, Drop takes readers on an adventure through the water cycle and beyond. Filled with irresistible artwork, funny asides, and a steady sprinkle of kid-enticing facts, Drop is the story about water you never knew you were thirsting for.
"Splashy and original." —Kirkus
"A stand out from others of its type." —SLC
“An endearing, conversational introduction to the water cycle.” —PW
Drop, an anthropomorphic water droplet portrayed as a smiling light blue ink splotch, is "four and a half billion!" years old. Drop greets dinosaurs, hangs out in the ocean, and sunbathes on the sea's surface before the action begins: a spread shows Drop heating from the sun's rays ("All bouncy-pouncy!" reads markered hand-lettering as she raises wiggly black line arms) before rising into the air with a "Poof!" Drop's journeys as clouds and weather follow, as well as her paths through bodies of water, glaciers, ground, and flora and fauna. Water "mixed only with various colors of India ink" is the apt medium for Moon's art; paired with ink brush lines, the illustrations have a soft early reader appeal. An endearing, conversational introduction to the water cycle. Ages 4 8.
