Product Details


“It’s always a pleasure when a book is rereleased, but it’s a particular pleasure when that same book has such an illustrious pedigree.  The Bishop/McCloskey pairing didn’t happen very often, but we can sure be glad that it did with this hidden treasure.” —Elizabeth Bird, School Library Journal

“Awakening sans his head, the man at the center of the tale tries to remember where he left it….The solution is as madcap as the rest of the story…but the prose and Caldecott winner McCloskey’s deliciously crisp artwork are evergreen.”   –Publishers Weekly


“[Bishop] has contrived out of what seems to be an impossible situation an entirely diverting farce, beautifully turned in phrase with the kind of zany logic essential to good nonsense…Strongly drawn pictures cap the tale with comedy in good country style.” —The New York Times
