“The cover of this book alone is worth the price. Rohmann's stunning wood-block style prints are a perfect complement to this great read-aloud tale. Rhythmic prose tells of the chain of events as one by one the animals fall into a jungle pit with the lurking threat of tigers nearby. Children will love the humor and tension and the repeated chorus of 'Oh, No!' as the story comes to a fitting end.”
— Leslie Reiner, Inkwood Books, Tampa, FL
"This picture book reads like an instant classic.... Oh, yes!" raved Kirkus Reviews in a starred review.
Young children will delight in repeating the refrain "OH, NO!" as one animal after another falls into a deep, deep hole in this lively read-aloud. This simple and irresistible picture book by hugely popular picture book creators—Candace Fleming and Caldecott medalist Eric Rohmann—feels like a classic-in-the-making. Fans of Rohmann's Caldecott Medal-winning My Friend Rabbit, will be thrilled to see a new book created in the same expressive and comical style.

Kirkus Reviews Best of Children's Books 2012
Starred Review, School Library Journal, August 1, 2012: “Fleming’s bouncing rhymes and repeated lines…entice readers into an enjoyable delivery complete with snarled sound effects and onomatopoeic exclamations.”
Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, July 9, 2012: “It’s a book with the feel of an older classic—and it may well become one.”
Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, May 15, 2012: “With text that begs to be read aloud and sumptuous illustrations made by a master printmaker, this picture book reads like an instant classic . . . Oh, yes! This is a terrific new picture book.”
