Shutta Crum, illustrated by David Catrow

“We are wild and fierce. We do not wait for invitations.” It’s time for the annual family

reunion, and the dozens of cousins are running wild like beasties. Like hungry ogres!

They hug fluttering aunts and soft-spoken elders, play in the creek, shimmy up trees,

take “double-dog dares,” and devour “the sweet juiciness of the world” along with hot

dogs and watermelon. Hilarious side stories unfold in Catrow’s fantastically colorful,

chaotic spreads that gambol and splash with comical caricatures of grinning kinfolk

large and small. A lively, lyrical celebration of the sweet, sweet abandon of running

amok among those who love you best.

Shutta Crum is a Kentucky-born children’s book author and storyteller. She lives with her

husband in Michigan. Visit her website at www.shuttacrum.com.

David Catrow is an editorial cartoonist and the illustrator of more than seventy children’s books.

He lives in Springfield, Ohio, with his wife and three dogs. Visit his website at www.catrow.com.

This picture book about a family reunion is an unabashedly
exuberant free-verse romp!
