KIRKUS REVIEW

Rebus games with Low, whose colorfully original work in graphic arts is probably familiar to you through advertising media, are amusing to puzzling combinations of words and pictures from which to figure the familiar verses. Parent and child can put their heads together for pleasant hours over sentences like this: Barber (picture of a man with scissors), barber, shave a pig (picture of a pig), How man (picture of a man)-y hairs to (picture of numeral 2) make a wig (picture of a wig)? Once the child's caught on, maybe with the help of the glossary in back, he can do it himself.
