Outstanding in the Rain


Outstanding in the Rain written and illustrated by Frank Viva (2015)

Die-cut illustrations tell the story of one boy who spends his birthday at the Coney Island. Each cut-out leads the reader to the next adventure. His ice cream cone on one page, becomes his screaming mouth on the next when a dog laps up his fallen cone. Older reader will not only enjoy the cut-outs, but they will love playing with the words in each one. For example, a sandwich become sand which is where they stop to eat their lunch.


This story would make an awesome springboard for carnival games such as you might find at Coney Island or other fairgrounds.

Whip up a couple to play with your family this weekend. Or start planning an Outstanding Memorial Day, Labor Day, 4th of July, or Family Reunion celebration!
