Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Galdone's line-and-watercolor illustrations have all the verve and accessible good humor associated with his work." Booklist, ALA
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2 This traditional barnyard song is readily available in collections (with music and/or accompanying motions) and also in at least one other picture book version, illustrated by Diane Stanley (Little, 1979; o.p.). Nevertheless, Galdone does a workmanlike job both in the retelling and the illustrations. His cast of charactersunlike Stanley's tarted-up pigs with ties and cats in silk and plumesappear in their natural fur and feathers, crunching apples, pecking for bugs and eating hay. The line-up is the traditional onewith the addition of a grandmother for the final stanza, presumably to lend a sense of conclusion to the text. The cartoon illustrations are bright and cheerful, with each new animal being individually introduced on a double-page spread, then joining the other animals under ``yonder tree'' in the succeeding double-page layouta design device that reinforces the rhythm and balance of the song itself. This edition will prove useful to librarians and parents who feel more comfortable holding and showing a book while they sing. Kristi Thomas Beavin, Arlington County Public Library, Va.

Meet the Author

Paul Galdone was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1907 and emigrated to the United States in 1928. After finishing his studies at the Art Student League and the New York School of Industrial Design, Mr. Galdone worked in the art department of a major publishing house. There he was introduced to the process of bookmaking, an activity that was soon to become his lifelong career. Before his death in 1986, Mr. Galdone illustrated almost three hundred books, many of which he himself wrote or retold. He is fondly remembered for his contemporary style, bright earthy humor, and action-filled illustrations, which will continue to delight for generations to come.

    Toni goes fiddle-i-fee

    My daughter, age 3, loves this book. We borrowed it from our public library and within 2 days she was 'reading' it herself! She knows it by heart! I highly recommend this book for any preschooler!
