When confronted by a crack in the sidewalk, kids of all ages know that you must never ever step on it. And why not? Just what could happen? In this wonderfully zany adventure a little boy finds out that such a fateful step (even if his mother's back is just fine) could lead to all sorts of startling and weird occurrences! And readers who step inside the pages of this splendidly wacky "what if" story may discover that there really is something to those silly old sayings after all!

Colin McNaughton is the author and illustrator of the popular Preston Pig books.From School Library Journal:
PreS-Gr 1-The superstition that it is bad luck to step on a crack in the sidewalk is the premise for this tongue-in-cheek, "what if" story. A boy is warned of the dire consequences of not heeding the old adage. Readers learn of the preposterous outcomes that might occur, such as turning into a girl, his dad deciding to become a hippie, his baby brother growing fangs, discovering that his best friend is really a monster in disguise, and on and on. Cartoonlike illustrations in water-based ink complement the zaniness of this rather slight picture book.
