Tap the page, shake the book, shout, clap and imagine a silly world of before-and-afters in this interactive picture book.

What happens when you knock on an egg? Flip a plate of sloppy spaghetti? Clap your hands near a tree full of birds?...OOPS! When children might otherwise be encouraged to be careful or quiet, in Oops! they are invited to explore cause and effect in mischievous scenarios without the real-life consequences. The results are often surprising and always fun!

“Kids are allowed to indulge in a cathartic release of naughty inclinations…As unapologetic as it is gleeful. Rule abiders need not apply.”
– Kirkus Reviews
“Presents a new way for parents and children alike to understand how to deal with accidents without expressing negative emotions...A must-have for all children’s collections. Highly Recommended.”
– CM: Canadian Review of Materials

“Illustrations suit the text well and are big and bold, which is great for young eyes. The interactivity and predictability of ‘oops’ on every other page makes this a good read aloud... Encourages the children to interact with what is on the pages and see what happens next… we can leave our own impact— sometimes it's just messy!”
