Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Knight places the fanciful poem inside another verbal and visual story, in which young Otto and Polly, attending Professor Comfort's Story and Music Hour, enjoy their adventure at sea, transformed into the title characters until called home for dinner. The jacket introduces the protagonists as they view the professor's magical house; the visual story continues from there, so that each page demands inspection. The gradual transformation of the children is subtly achieved; their adventures in the "land where the bong-tree grows" are deliciously replete with visual metaphors and appealing creatures in deft watercolors. This new edition has added a foldout of the sheet music by Douglas Colby, and notes from Knight and Bernadette Peters, along with concept drawings from Knight's sketchbook. 2001 (orig. 1983), Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, $17.00. Ages 4 to 8. Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
