Sinopsis:

One rainy night a wee fat man and his wee fat wife are joined in their feather bed by a variety of animals including a skunk

From Kirkus Reviews:

An old-fashioned treat--wacky art from Westcott paired with a reassuring and delightful cumulative text by Gray (Little Lil and the Swing-Singing Sax, 1996, etc.) that grows funnier with each reading. A ``wee fat man and a wee fat woman'' live in a ``teeny, tiny house at the bottom of a great green hill.'' Their extended family includes eight animals: a goose, a duck, a sheep, a hen, a pig, a dog, a cow, and a cat. A plump skunk tries to join in, but the animals keep their distance. When a rainstorm blows up one night, animal after animal, two by two, beg admittance to the house: ``Honk honk honk,/Quack quack quack,/the rain is pouring/on our feathered backs.'' The woman is welcoming: ``Why, bless your hearts,/such a noise, such a fuss./There's room on the feather bed/for all of us.'' The pages become more crowded with hilarious, eye-popping details until the moment when the skunk is admitted to the bed by the drowsy hostess. The result is satisfyingly predictable, making the book a lesson in tolerance disguised as a potential story-hour favorite. (Picture book. 2-6) -- Copyright ©1997, Kirkus Associates, LP.
