Jan Thomas' picture books (Rhyming Dust Bunnies, Can You Make a Scary Face? and Here Comes the Big, Mean Dust Bunny!) have found an appreciative audience with those who love big, bold, bright illustrations and silly stories.

Open this book and 'PLOP'. There are three cows jumping onto a red sofa. 'It's time to JUMP up and down, up and down. Let's all JUMP up and down! On Chicken's sofa!'

Chicken is not amused! 'Wait a minute! There's no JUMPING on my sofa!'

Ok, the cows stop, but not for long! 'Is everyone ready for MORE FUN?! It's time to DANCE! Back and forth, back and forth. Let's all DANCE back and forth! On Chicken's sofa!'

Oh dear! The cows don't seem to get it! They aren't supposed to plop, jump, dance, or wiggle on Chicken's sofa. But as you will discover, there is one thing they can do on that red sofa. What is it? You'll see what it is when you read this zany book.

Reminiscent of Mo Willems' work, Is Everyone Ready For Fun? will have children three years of age and older giggling as they page through this book. With its simple text it is also an ideal starter book for a beginning reader. And don't forget 'NO JUMPING ON THE SOFA!'
