Reviews

A unique parody of an iconic, cumulative, rhyming nonsense song. . . . For readers familiar with both stories, the ending is much funnier than either tale on its own--although it also stands alone. The careful scansion replication allows readers to sing the text as a refreshing replacement of other versions. . . . A superior revision.
--Kirkus Reviews

This picture book takes its whimsically nonsensical premise and pairs it with a catching cumulative rhyme and "The Princess and the Pea" fairy tale. . . sure to have kiddos giggling and chanting along at an ideally pre-lunch storytime.
--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
