★ "Pearson's pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations easily convey the exuberance of her characters be they human or animal. Her dynamic scenes are full of details that keep the story zipping along with the text. . . . this clever book will delight all readers."--School Library Journal, Starred Review

"Sprightly watercolor illustrations in a mix of double-page spreads and vignettes pace the action perfectly; the many details will keep and hold youngsters' attentions . . ."--The Horn Book

"The cheery, bouncy text of the rhyme could turn out to become a favorite of young readers/listeners sitting in laps or hearing this in group sessions. The loose pen-and-ink-and-watercolor illustrations suit the action well, suggesting energetic movement and lighthearted activity. . . . An engaging, lively addition to the Mother Goose canon."--Kirkus Reviews

"Quiet cheer and sweet-tempered humor mark artwork by Pearson (Tuck-in Time), who sprinkles her loosely drawn pen, ink, and watercolor spreads with incidents for readers to discover . . . a nursery rhyme fantasy that offers both excitement and coziness." --Publishers Weekly

"While letting the traditional phrases work their magic, Pearson captures the spirit of the nonsense in lively ink drawings with watercolor washes. . . . With plenty of intriguing characters and visual details to discover, here's a lively interpretation of a classic nursery rhyme." --Booklist
