It’s Raining Bats and Frogs written by Rebecca Colby and illustrated by Steven Henry (2015)
Delia tries to make the Witches Parade better by changing the rain to cats and dogs, then hats and clogs, even bats and frogs. But none of these changes is very good. Eventually, she goes back to the boring raindrops. And not only are all the witches happier with the rain, so are the floats which actually float, and the marching band which learns synchronized swimming! As a matter of fact the whole parade turned out to be the best one yet… until the year it snowed!
The text in this story goes beyond the traditional “It’s raining, it’s pouring” chant. Witches, goblins, and little creatures of all kinds will delight in Delia’s magic spells. They may even want to make a few of their own!
