Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Following up his successful books on homonyms ( The King Who Rained , A Chocolate Moose for Dinner and The Sixteen Hand Horse ), Gwynne allows a bewildered girl to narrate some perplexing developments. ``Grandma says our four bears came from Scotland,'' is paired with a picture of four bears in kilts, doing a Highland fling. Manholes, naval oranges and a coat that is ``a little thread bear,'' are just some of the amusing twists of the language that Gwynne illustrates with the literal-minded images of a child. The pictures are surprising, and revealed in a rapid-fire pace, until the little girl concludes ``Yarns like these are hard to swallow!'' as she spools spaghetti-like strands of wool around a fork. This is fun and inventive fare for all ages. Ages 6-10. (September)
School Library Journal
Gr 4-8 Using homonyms and figures of speech, Gwynne has created a rib-tickling collection of word-and-picture jokes sure to delight readers. Similar in tone and spirit to his A Chocolate Moose for Dinner (Prentice-Hall, 1987), this one cleverly combines lively and humorous full-page color illustrations with carefully chosen words that have double meanings. The young girl seen throughout this light-hearted volume lends continuity and helps to tie the text together. As narrator, she shares with readers her misconceptions about things that adults have told her. For example, the sentence, ``My teacher says I get along well with my piers'' is accompanied by an illustration of the child sitting on the edge of a boat dock. A couple of the witty offerings are a bit more subtle, however, and may require a bit of explanation for less sophisticated readers. The humor in the little girl sewing college pennants to illustrate ``In Sunday School they say when you are bad you should do pennants'' may be lost on children unfamiliar with the ecclesiastical term. However, the selections of less-than-obvious humor are in the minority and should not deter librarians who wish to add a fresh, sparkling title to their English language collections.
