Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Henry Cole is at it again. His zany pictures add plenty of humor to a rhyming text filled with lots of word play and alliteration by Walton. Animals are introduced by the sounds they make and these sounds are turned into words in the subsequent verse. Among my favorites are the snakes that say "Kissss! Kissss!" and head off to dreamland with their little pillows and blankets after a kiss from mom and pop, and the little doves who say "Coooool! Coooool!" and are shown cooling off in a plastic swimming pool. This is a book that toddlers will probably want read quite a few times, so parents and caregivers should start practicing their animal sounds. Also, there are plenty of objects to talk and chuckle about in each of the pictures. 2000, Putnam, Ages 2 to 5, $12.99. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
PreS-K-Walton's wacky wordplay twists the typical noises associated with different animals to create rhyming phrases that describe their often unusual activities. From kissing snakes to hungry vultures, rough-and-tumble puppies to astronaut cows, these cartoon-style creatures will prompt giggles and grins from young listeners. "Little horses say,/`Nay! Nay!/You can't ride on us today!'" Still, some of the rhymes seem forced ("Little lambs say,/`Maaa! Maaa!/Mom, we want something to gnaw!"). Cole's comical illustrations, rendered in acrylic paints and colored pencils, add to the book's appeal. The animals' expressive faces are clearly the focus of the simply composed pictures. Humorous details like the flowered swim cap on a mother bird or the pink-and-blue blankets covering the sleepy snakes give the book a goofy charm. There's no real story to speak of, and the brevity of the text makes it a quick read, but this book is sure to be a storytime hit. Older listeners might even be inspired to adapt other noises to create their own ridiculous rhymes.-Lisa Dennis, The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, PA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Walton (Bullfrog Pops!, 1999, etc.) works a series of rhymed changes on the idea that animal sounds are a kind of shorthand: "Little cows say, / 'Moo-oon! Moo-oon! / We would like to go there soon.' / Moo-oon! Soon! / Get them there by noon / When the cows say, 'Moo-oon!'" Similarly for young horses, snakes, and other creatures, closing with chicks chirping, "Sheep! Sheep! Sheep!" to count themselves to sleep. This is made for reading aloud, and Cole (The Wacky Wedding, 1999, etc.) adds to the fun with scenes of expressive cartoon animals barking, braying, hissing, and mooing enthusiastically. Don't expect listeners to say, "Enough!" after just one run-through. (Picture book. 4-7). . . Warner, Sally TOTALLY CONFIDENTIAL HarperCollins (160 pp.) paper Jun. 30, 2000
