paper 0-7636-0445-0 Five plum tarts baked for breakfast make Bonnie Bumble turn over—literally! All day long she’s upside down, wearing her hat on her toes, and her shoes on her hands. Collecting milk and eggs are nearly impossible, and the farm animals nibble on her hair and stick their tails in her face. Luckily there’s one plum turnover left. When Bonnie gobbles it up, she goes full circle and lands back on her feet again. Everything’s right side up, except for her pup, Spot, who nibbled some turnover crumbs. Craig’s drawings give this companion to One Windy Wednesday (1996, not reviewed) a real boost, although she turns the adultish Bonnie Bumble (who bakes) of the text into a child-age character, capable of those flips. (Picture book. 3-6)
