Publisher: Simon & Schuster

 An appealing, hand-sized collection of 16 poems, mostly contemporary and familiar but concluding with a line from Shakespeare, deftly arranged to lead the reader through a day and the preparations for a traditional party. Knight's lively tots are expressive and amusing. A simple idea for a book, executed with unusual success. (Poetry/Picture book. 4-8)
