KIRKUS REVIEW

 The traditional cumulative chant is set in the Caribbean by a new illustrator who's lived in Antigua. Creating collages from paper textured in warmly glowing island colors, Stow depicts a tidy little orange-and-white house surrounded by lush vegetation, appealingly stylized animals, and a man and maiden who trade their tatters for fine wedding clothes in time for the priest. A handsome new setting for an old favorite. (Folklore/Picture book. 2-7)
