KIRKUS REVIEW

 Three exquisitely simple preschool dramas: ``Angry Jenny'' frightens the cat, breaks her doll, is sent to bed to cry and then makes amends all around; she and friend Bob find a ``Poor Bird''--not sleeping, they agree, but dead--and honor it with burial and a special guard, including dolls and an interested cat; a ``Rainy Day'' finds the two happily involved in imaginative play in a puddle. Denton's perceptive illustrations are as economical as the text; her small people are unusually gentle and beguiling, yet without sentimentality. Perfect for lap or toddler group. (Picture book. 2-6)
