Thirsty Thursday (Hardcover)

Thirsty Thursday Cover Image
By Phyllis Root, Helen Craig (Illustrator)


A lack of rain makes snapdragons snap and tiger lilies growl — until Bonnie gets an idea — in this silly tale by a master of wordplay and an acclaimed illustrator.

One Thirsty Thursday on Bonnie Bumble’s farm, everyone is dry and thirsty, especially the flowers. The black-eyed Susans are spoiling for a fight, and the clouds refuse to even drop by. But when a little cloud blows past at last, Bonnie comes up with a clever plan that calls for interspecies cooperation — and is sure to tickle little readers.
