LAURA'S STORY by Beatrice Sehenk de Regniers


Email this review


A turnabout bedtime story, which has mother interrupting with comments, protests, and questions while little Laura tells about when ""I was big and you were little. . . so little, a soupspoon could be your bathtub."" The story ends with mother being swallowed by a fish, the fish by a dog, and so on up to a big monster--until ""you sneezed"" several times and were coughed up by each animal in turn. A spontaneous-sounding pleasantry, drawn as a little kid (or at least a cartoon-watching little kid) might see it--but it does smack of the ""ain't kids cute"" approach.
