Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In this sprightly counting rhyme--derived from an 18th-century verse--imagination and creativity spring from Tryon's detail-packed pages as nimbly as her eponymous amphibian. The creator of Albert, the goose who played a letter-perfect carpenter in Albert's Alphabet and impressario in Albert's Play , has populated that fowl's hometown of Pleasant Valley with an animal cast that would do Marlin Perkins proud. Stepping off with a flawless jete in front of the post office, the mail-carrying frog's first delivery is to a sour-faced bulldog, seen emerging with pastries from Sir C's (Circe's?) Bakery--``2 birthday cakes for a very old dog.'' Others glimpsed in this bustling burg include ``4 ostriches who like to jog'' (in color-coordinated outfits that must be seen to be disbelieved), five puppies at Mrs. Golden's Day Care (presided over, of course, by a golden retriever), and, in a glorious overhead shot, 10 peacocks cavorting variously in a biplane, hot air balloon and parachutes. In the best Hitchcock tradition, Alfred (the goose, not the filmmaker) makes two cameo appearances (hint: one is a photographic likeness). Humorous touches abound in these softly colored, practically full-page illustrations, as Tryon demonstrates a remarkable attention to the minutiae of small-town life. Characters frequently reappear, pursuing their diverse activities with perfectly concentrated continuity. Even the book's jacket is a model of drollery in this work of unalloyed joy. Ages 3-6. (Mar.)
School Library Journal
PreS-K-- This is a visually exciting book, but one that is flawed in its basic presentation. Active, stylized illustrations done in pastel shades bring immediate attention to the concept of counting. Unfortunately, there's a serious lack of sequential patterning necessary for very young learners. A bouncy rhythmic text introduces each of the numbers, from one to five. It then repeats these numbers backwards, ending with the number one. The following page picks up with six and continues through to ten. The final page repeats the text in its entirety with the ordinal numbers beginning each sentence of the rhyme. The colored-pencil and pen illustrations add bounce and zest and lend action to each page. Large white spacing surrounds the animal antics, and the one or two lines of text per page appear prominently in these areas. A double-page spread near the end lists the numbers with their accompanying animals for readers to count--ten peacocks, nine children, etc. The illustrations bring the book full-circle by highlighting ``1 gaping wide-mouthed hopping frog'' on its own page. Kindergarteners will appreciate the humor and story line going on within the pictures, but Merle Peek's Roll Over (Clarion, 1981), Lois Ehlert's Fish Eyes (HBJ, 1990), or Jose Aruego's One Duck, Another Duck (Greenwillow, 1984) are all better choices for teaching preschoolers to count. --Mary Lou Budd, Milford South Elementary School, OH
