KIRKUS REVIEW

A very young and comforting version of the eternal quest for ""the strongest one of all."" A lamb slips on the ice and cries, ""Ice, ice, you made me fall./ Are you strong?/ Are you the strongest one of all?"" But, no--the sun can melt the ice, the cloud can cover the sun, rain scatters the cloud, earth swallows the rain, grass roots push through earth. . . and the grass is eaten by a lamb, who leaps with joy: ""I may slip, and I may fall,/ but I'm the strongest!/ I'm the strongest of them all!"" Strong and clear and pleasantly addled, with a bright orange bird as the lamb's sidekick and as jaunty a comeback as Whose Mouse Are You? had.
