It is hard to believe that Cincinnati Patty, Justin Austin, Pennington Poe, and the little pink pig in Arkansas have not been chanted and sung about by children for generations. But it is not hard to believe that they Will be chanted and sung about for generations to come! Jack Prelutsky and Garth Williams have created a nursery world, peopled with unforgettable characters. Come and meet your new friends. They will be old friends soon!
This collection of Jack Prelutsky is delightfully nonsensical, as we've come to expect from the creator of The New Kid on the Block and more than 40 other equally zany collections. We were thinking of Edward Lear's The Jumblies as we read, "Jilliky Jolliky Jelliky Jee,/three little cooks in a coconut tree,/one cooked a peanut and one cooked a pea,/one brewed a thimble of cinnamon tea,/then they sat down to a dinner for three,/Jilliky Jolliky Jelliky Jee." If you've wondered why potatoes can't see even with all those eyes, or why poor Pennington Poe is weeping, this is the book for you and your kids. Garth Williams, illustrator of Charlotte's Web and Bedtime for Frances, enhances this lively collection with his whimsical, expressive paintings. (Ages 2 to 6)
