SMALL FRY by Eve Merriam


Email this review


The lean pickings of both text and illustrations are a check to the instant appeal of baby animals and their identifying terms. Pictures of the young ones of quite a number of familiar and popular species are accompanied with the specific word for the type of baby. The names are tied together with some irrelevant and pretty meaningless verses, which occasionally chirrup off into italicized lines for the adults reading this aloud to gag over: ""Hoo, little owlet, hooeee./ Who, me?/ Yes, you, little owlet, youee.
