It’s spring and the animals in the forest can’t stop sneezing. But something surprising happens each time an animal says achoo! After sniffing a flower, blue bear sneezes and his round blue ears fly to the next page, where fox mistakes them for blueberries.
But before fox knows it, ‘Achoo!’ his triangular ears are also soaring over the page to be found by another animal. At the end of the book, we see how each animal has sneezed their way to a completely new look. Filled with humour, Achoo! is an entertaining introduction to shapes and colours.
