Munsinger's illustrations prop up this...tale with a brace of good cheer and well-tempered comedy.
The punchy story line will keep children laughing, and Munsinger's characteristic watercolor illustrations bring the tale to life, making Lester's cretures all the more entertaining and enjoyable.

Lester enhances the basic story about handling emotions with a satisfying slapstick humor that's beautifully extended in Munsinger's hilarious, wildly expressive illustrations.
The visual humor and the many opportunities for group interaction may win the book its own cadre of storytime fans.
