KIRKUS REVIEW

 Another enchanting alphabet from the illustrator of On Market Street (1981, Caldecott Honor). A diminutive Pierrot packs a gigantic basket with produce for his friend Pierrette-- ``Asparagus,'' ``Beets,'' ``Flowers,'' exotics like ``Indian figs'' and ``a Pineapple,'' and finally a ``Ukelele'' and a ``Xylophone'' so that they can share music at their picnic, plus a ``Zebra'' to carry it all to Pierrette. Lobel's bright-colored illustrations are merry and decorative, with Pierrot's traditional costume ballooning around him as he gathers lettuces and mushrooms as large as he is. Charming. (Picture book. 3-7)
