KIRKUS REVIEW

Four characters put on a winning fashion show that teaches words and colors to early readers.

Boynton’s classic board book, featuring her signature goofy animal characters and repetitive text, translates perfectly to an interactive format. An endearing cast of color-coordinated characters shows off shirts, shorts, socks and hats with a charming chorus of grunts, squishes and “oops-es!” Mr. Turkey never puts anything on in the right place, providing chuckles for parents and little ones alike. The background music is a simple, plucked melody (reminiscent of an old-fashioned Jack-in-the-Box) and combines well with Billy J. Kramer’s understated narration to enhance the fun of the experience. The photographic background of a suitcase full of clothes frames the white background of the book's pages without distracting from the book itself at center stage. Kids can play with the words and animals on every page and then really go to town on the second-to-last page, where they can “dress” the turkey from a dresser full of clothes. The satisfying ending includes a bounding dive into a cool, blue pool.

Simple in the best sense of the word and as entertaining as any runway event out there. (iPad storybook app. 2-4)
