Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
In this simple but sharp joint debut, Mike Downs and David Sheldon make a game of rhyming word pairs. Each right-hand page asks two questions and insinuates the answers in a crafty cartoon.

For example, as a jaunty pruple kangaroo and a rust-brown bird use a boardwalk shower on a sunny stretch of beach, the text inquires, "What do joeys use to wash their hair?/What do hooting birds use to dry off?" The page's verso supplies the solutions in a curly typeface: "Kangaroo shampoo/Owl towel." After a few tries, readers will get the hang of guessing what "an octopus like[s] to sip" (ink drink) or the name of "a crustacean musical group" (sand band).

All told, Downs presents 20 riddles and a smattering of open-endedjokes (a blue canine and a green amphibian on the title page wonder, "What rhymes with dog?"). Resembling animation stills with their undiluted colors and refined edges, Sheldon's illustrations add plenty of punchy fun. -Los Angeles Times

Publishers Weekly
In this simple but sharp joint debut, Downs and Sheldon make a game of rhyming word pairs. Each right-hand page asks two questions and insinuates the answers in a crafty cartoon. For example, as a jaunty purple kangaroo and a rust-brown bird use a boardwalk shower on a sunny stretch of beach, the text inquires, "What do joeys use to wash their hair? What do hooting birds use to dry off?" The page's verso supplies the solutions in a curly typeface: "Kangaroo shampoo Owl towel." After a few tries, readers will get the hang of guessing what "an octopus like[s] to sip" (ink drink) or the name of "a crustacean musical group" (sand band). All told, Downs presents 20 riddles and a smattering of open-ended jokes (a blue canine and a green amphibian on the title page wonder, "What rhymes with dog?"). Resembling animation stills with their undiluted colors and refined edges, Sheldon's splashy, nearly three-dimensional illustrations add plenty of punchy fun. Ages 4-8.

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Two easy-to-read riddles are presented on each recto, with answers on the following verso. For example, "What is a frog's favorite dessert? Fly pie"; "What do you call a rabbit that tells jokes? Funny bunny." A few are a bit more challenging: "What do you call a well-mannered insect that eats houses? Polite termite." Colorful, digitally enhanced illustrations give clues to the rhyming answers, designed to tickle the funny bones of beginning readers. A silly supplemental purchase.-Sally R.
