Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The simple text works well with the neatly executed drawings. This traditional tale is sure to amuse beginning readers, who will get a lesson in logic as well."—Booklist.  
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-- In this delightful variation of the old tale, five fishermen spend the day fishing, and before going home, decide to count to make sure one of them has not drowned during the day. Each fisherman counts and comes up with only four fishermen, forgetting himself as he counts. They cry and bemoan the loss of their friend until a little girl comes along and ``finds'' their missing friend in exchange for a fish. She tells them to jump into the river while she counts--to five. She goes home with the fish, but the fishermen are happy to be reunited. Soft-colored caricature drawings extend the humor of the text. The font is appropriately large and well laid-out with the illustrations. Good silly fun for very young readers. --Sharron McElmeel, Cedar Rapids Community Schools, IA
