KIRKUS REVIEW

The total appeal of tongue twisters is attested to by the fact that they have been handed down from generation to generation since time immemorial. These were taken from the late Dr. Potter's authoritative collection. His first compilation for children was Tongue Tanglers, which was very well-received. The rigmarole is a counting twister that dates back to medieval times. Three pages of author's notes document his sources and discuss variant versions. The illustrations in four colors highlight the fun of the twisters in the illustrator's well known style. Of particular appeal to word tasters and those whose tongues can flap with flexibility.
