Age Range: 1 - 3

KIRKUS REVIEW

This entry in the Growing Tree series provides a sampling of ten classic rhymes. The sturdy format allows little ones to explore the world of moon-leaping cows and blackbird pies, Mrs. Hen and her speckled offspring, and many other extraordinary characters. Whatley’s wry interpretation of these familiar verses, however, has appeal for adults, too. Every illustration contains some element of surprise, e.g., Wee Willie Winkie’s nightly jaunt takes him past the butcher’s, the baker’s, and the candlestick maker’s. A witty introduction to the realm of nursery rhymes. (Picture book. 1-3)
