Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
In 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 Wilde
Several 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!
From the Publisher

"Exploding with whimsy, humor, and zest . . . Be prepared to read this one a thousand times!"—Booklist (starred review)
 
"The characters in Wood's sunny, simple pen and watercolor illustrations fairly bounce off the page in this exuberant cumulative rhyme . . . A surefire read-aloud."—Kirkus Reviews (pointer review)
