Silly Sallyby Audrey Wood
In this all-time favorite, Silly Sally comes to life for toddlers to enjoy. Full-color board book.
Children's Literature - Marilyn CourtotIn yet another adaptation to board book format, Wood's amusing story works quite well. Toddlers and others will chuckle at the heroine with her springy red hair, purple dress, and ruffled pantaloons walking backwards and upside down into town. It makes no sense and the situation is absurd, but the lively characters and funny pictures will bring lots of smiles. 1999 (orig.
Children's Literature - Susie WildeSeveral masters of rhyme create new books. In Silly Sally Wood conceives a nursery rhyme character who's new in invention, but classic in spirit. "Silly Sally went to town, / walking backwards, upside down." As she travels she meets a host of characters just as goofy as she. Amazingly, Wood includes conflict, character interactions, humor to inspire giggles, sunny pictures, a suitable resolution and makes it all look simple!
