Reviews

"Love the book. . . . A hungry snake. A beautiful brown boy. What more can a young reader ask for?"--National Book Award winner Jacqueline Woodson
"What fun Daniel Bernstrom has with words! Living as we do in a society where the emphasis is on television, film, and videos, this book shows children how delightful language can be. The wonderful and colorful illustrations add to the playful joy of this book."--Newbery Honor winner Julius Lester
"Children will enjoy the rhythms of the musical text and eagerly anticipate each new meal, reveling in the inevitable outcome. VERDICT Pair this title with any version of "There Was an Old Lady" for a satisfying storytime.-Barbara Auerbach, New York City Public Schools."--School Library Journal
"Bernstrom's spritely language rhythmically sings an exciting, laugh-filled, cumulative story. Bold, large print highlights the events as the snake slides, wiggles, and twists while the animals crinkle, munch, and buzz. Wenzel's wildly imaginative, brightly hued digital illustrations are a wonderfully goofy complement to the action . . .--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Debut author Bernstrom draw(s) in readers with lilting refrains and exuberant wordplay. Wenzel knows how to mix his media: there's a luxuriously whiskered cat, a sloth with a sweaterlike coating of moss, "an ape eating grapes, / lounging like a queen," and a very big bear.'--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Onomatopoeia and action words abound, as does the rhythm and repetition, making this cumulative tale skip along. The rainbow eucalyptus tree, its leaves, and the fanciful mix of critters are depicted in marvelously colorful digital illustrations."--Booklist (starred review)
