Grade 2-4–Using concrete poetry as the vehicle, Sidman relates a simple story. These natural enemies meet at a neighborhood park where, forced to wait out a thunderstorm under a picnic table, they take comfort in huddling together and later emerge as buddies. Joan Bransfield Graham's Flicker Flash (1999) and Splish Splash (1994, both Houghton) and J. Patrick Lewis's Doodle Dandies (S & S, 1998) are better examples of concrete poetry for the same age group.

by Joyce Sidman and Michelle Berg . Plump, bright dome, of sugary white, sky muffin. Joyce Sidman’s descriptive cloud poem will change shape, form, and content over the course of this intriguing picture book, just like the clouds themselves. If there’s a story here, it’s of small dog and a small cat at odds with one another until a sudden storm finds them sheltering beneath the same picnic table. But the real story is the way that tale is told-in a series of concrete poems that chronicle the storm’s rise and fall, the changing relationship of the two animals, and their surroundings.
