We liked?


A fun book about a little boy who makes the best of a soggy day.

Not so much?


It's short and very repetitious - great for young kids, but not so much for their older siblings.


Final Fiendish Findings?

Poor Malcolm. All he wants is a fun day of playing outside – and then, the rain comes. After it rains all around everything nearby, the unthinkable happens – it rains on Malcolm (how rude!). What’s a guy to do when a sudden rainstorm spoils his plan for a day of playing in the sun? […]

Poor Malcolm. All he wants is a fun day of playing outside – and then, the rain comes. After it rains all around everything nearby, the unthinkable happens – it rains on Malcolm (how rude!). What’s a guy to do when a sudden rainstorm spoils his plan for a day of playing in the sun? Get out your rain gear and splash in the puddles, of course! After an outrageously good time splashing everywhere, Malcolm runs right into the house, forgetting all about his muddy boots and clothes. Mom is none too happy about that, so Malcolm has to put his mind towards a happy solution – a bath.
And Then It Rained On Malcolm uses lots of repetition and plenty of colorful illustrations to get young kids interested in poor Malcolm’s soggy plight. From his initial disappointment at the sudden downpour to his boisterous splashing in puddles, kids can relate to Malcolm and his great ideas for making the day better. The book provides a nice little lesson on making the best of things when your day doesn’t go quite as you planned. Though the repetition and brevity of the book makes it more suitable for younger children, it’s a great book to share with a toddler or preschooler – or even a nice choice for a beginning reader ready to tackle reading on their own. The illustrated Malcolm is incredibly expressive, showing the range of his emotions throughout the book, and the colorful illustrations of his antics will keep little eyes glued to the pages.
