Step right up! Step right up to the amusing amusement park!
It’s a whole story, and the pages have holes!
Watch the holes transform pictures!
Turn an umbrella into a cake and balloons into ice cream!
See the holes transform words!
Turn an ice man into a nice man and see fork handles turn into four candles!
Outstanding in the Rain will turn any gray day into one that is Grade A!

From the creator of New York Times Best-Illustrated book Along a Long Road and A Long Way Away, picture book master Frank Viva does it again, this time with astounding die-cuts that transform both words and pictures in delightful ways, while telling the story of a young boy spending his birthday at Coney Island, in search of his heart’s desire.

  • "As my favorite contemporary children's artist-author, only Frank Viva has the esthetic chops to find holes in the certainty of words to let the uncertain poetry of life show through. This book blends and bends simplicity and complexity to their breaking points, and I guarantee it will knock you out."
    Chris Ware, author of Building Stories
