KIRKUS REVIEW

I'm going to have a party./ But I don't think/ that I'll ask/ Hooper Humperdink."" The rest is just a rhymed jog trot through the alphabet, listing who 'T' will ask (to quote the M's, midway: ""And Mark and Mary!/ Mike and Mabel!/ I'll have to get/ a bigger table!""), but reconsidering after Zacharias, Zeke and Zipper: ""A party big and good as this/ is too good for anyone to miss!/ And so, you know, I sort of think. . ."" That's all; obviously readers can supply the last line as automatically as LeSieg has been droning along the dotted one from the start. Shut it out.
