Slight wear to jacket. From School PreSchool-K-Walsh is at it again-this time focusing on different activities and just who can (and can't) perform them. The basic format remains the same as in Do Pigs Have Stripes (1996) and Do Monkeys Tweet (1997, both Houghton). Seemingly straightforward questions are guaranteed to prompt giggles and denials from young listeners. "Do pigs buzz around flowers/No, bees buzz around flowers." Illustrations are chunky and charming, and set on brightly colored backgrounds. The simple text is repetitive enough that young listeners will catch on to the pattern right away, but varied enough that it does not become tedious.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Walsh has produced another sure-fire toddler treat in this series of questions that will have an audience of one or a dozen shouting out the answers."—Kirkus Reviews 3/1/00) Kirkus Reviews

"They’ll clamor to hear it again."—The Bulletin (4/00) The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

'Walsh is at it again—this time focusing on different activities and just who can and can't perform them. . . .adults will realize that this deceptively simple silliness is well thought out and perfectly executed. Kids won't care about these details though; they'll be too busy having fun."—School Library Journal (4/00) School Library Journal

Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Book Award

Children's Literature
In a series of absurd questions, Walsh asks kids if pigs fly around flowers and the answers is no, of course not, but bees do. The litany continues by asking about turtles leaping, hippos hopping, chickens swimming under water, lady bugs standing on one leg and whether you can fly. To all the questions the answer is no and the correct animal is shown demonstrating the motion. While the little girl cannot truly fly, she can ride in an airplane, and the book closes on a positive note and a wish for a good journey¾"Bon voyage!" The board book provides humor both in the text and the illustrations. Also some illustrations are in landscape and others in portrait mode so there is a little variety in the format. Toddlers should enjoy this one. 2002 (orig. 2000),
— Marilyn Courtot
Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Perfect for reading aloud to toddlers and preschoolers, this colorful book asks questions about how animals move. Do Pigs buzz around flowers? Can a cat hang upside down in a tree? Do chickens swim underwater? Each question is followed by an answer page that illustrates which animal moves in a specific fashion--bees buzz around flowers, bats hang upside down, and fish swim underwater. Young readers will enjoy shouting out the answers as they turn the pages of this delightful picture book. The author's clever text and eye-catching, bright illustrations will even hold the attention of those small "wigglers" who tend to squirm during story time. 2000, Houghton Mifflin Company, Ages 2 to 6, $15.00.
