Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Picture book newcomer Diana Mayo gives a fresh coat of paint to The House That Jack Built. She illustrates the time-honored cumulative rhyme with crisp lines, detailed vistas and zesty colors, and the human expressions on the beleaguered animals add to the fun. (Aug.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-This traditional rhyme may not be as well known to today's youngsters as others, but Mayo seeks to remedy this situation. As the layers of the verse build, she illustrates them with folksy representations of the characters in bold acrylics on hotpress watercolor paper that reinforce the rural character of the rhyme. The book is slightly oversized and each illustration is double-page, making this volume good for group sharing. While some listeners may prefer Jeanette Winter's The House That Jack Built (Dial, 2000), its small format is best for one-on-one sharing or individual reading.-Shara Alpern, The Free Library of Philadelphia Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
