KIRKUS REVIEW

Tafuri's illustrations for 11 phrases--"a dish in a cupboard," "a cat in a chair," "a baby on a lap," etc.- -command attention with their dynamic compositions and jewel- bright colors, but the title's premise seems more like a point of departure for discussion than a statement of where these things belong. "A cow in a barn" is eating hay, though there's green grass outside; "a flower in a garden" is depicted as a single daffodil in a field. Young children may enjoy pointing out that, though one crayon is "in a box," another is in use; and while some books are being read, others are "on a shelf." The concept isn't developed with much logic, but Tafuri's graphic style has its usual appeal; the book might find good interactive use as toddlers explore where else these things might appropriately be.
