KIRKUS REVIEW

 The much overlooked Ms. Mouse, whose Poems of A. Nonny Mouse (1989) was an ALA Notable, reappears with another collection of comic verse often attributed to ``Anonymous'' (plus four entries claimed to be the work of her compiler). Informally grouped by subject, with several entries sharing each spread (various fantastical events occur in the sea around Noah's Ark, including Prelutsky's ``Tiny surfer,/Bold and brave,/Surfed upon/A microwave''), the verses include much that's long familiar as well as some of more recent vintage (``Methuselah ate what he found on his plate''--and never counted calories). Priceman's illustrations, singing with color and lively with activity, have a lot of panache; they don't have the marvelous wit and elegance of Drescher's surreal art for the first book, but they may appeal to a wider audience. Not quite as ebullient as Ms. Mouse's earlier effort, but still wonderfully welcome. (Poetry/Picture book. 4-10
