KIRKUS REVIEW

Classic nursery rhymes with food themes are the focus of this delightful compilation. Fitzgerald ingeniously ties together the diverse collection with her richly detailed, pastel-colored illustrations. Readers will follow father piggy as he goes to the farmer’s market to prepare for the party featured on the final page. Along the way, he meets other nursery-rhyme characters—a black hen, Tommy Tucker, Peter Piper, Jack Horner, Jack Sprat and Little Miss Muffet, among others—who are either shopping or selling their own wares. The artwork will put children’s powers of observation to good use as they scour the pictures for their favorites. The clever way the rhymes are tied together makes this collection stand out above the rest—“Yum, yum,” indeed. (Picture book. 2-5)
