Not only will children learn to make use of all their senses and more fully appreciate the world around them, they will likely laugh at some of the silly predicaments Sally finds herself in, from the crab clinging to her nose to the starfish riding on her face. Then there's Sally's way of doing the dishes after dinner -- by simply licking the plates. Sally's journey is depicted in brightly colored woodcut prints done by the author, a talent for which he is internationally renown. Each illustration requires carving several blocks for each shape and color, and the end result is as unique as it is eye-catching. But most of all, it's Sally's wonderful sense of fun, her unbridled curiosity, and her contagious love of life that make this book a standout.
