KIRKUS REVIEW

 As in Gorilla, Chinchilla (1990), some rather inane verse (``The hen in a bucket/Watches her chick,/Who's learning to balance--/A difficult trick'') serves to caption some odd pairings, in this case of animals and their containers. Kitchen's art is still wonderfully detailed and appealing, but there's nothing very clever here in either the choice of subjects or their treatment. For admirers of Kitchens's splendid Animal Alphabet (1984), a disappointment. (Picture book. 4-8)
