Product Details


Most of the selections aren’t more than a few stanzas long, but each one hits you with a bright burst of humor that’s like a sip of a fizzy drink on a hot day. . . . Hawkes’s pencil and acrylic illustrations highlight the humor and the whimsy of the nonsense verses, but they also underscore the poems’ innocence and childlike dignity when called for, and the artist gets the mix exactly right.
—The Horn Book (starred review)

The quaint poems have liberal helpings of both wit and whimsy and an occasional sprinkling of mild potty humor. . . . The whole has an uncluttered and inviting effect. Likely to become a classic, this is a great addition to any picture-book collection.
—School Library Journal (starred review)
