Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Dorros's (Abuela) toe-tapping title cuts a rug among counting books. As the band plays on, various members of a vibrant animal cast take to the dance floor. One osprey dances ballet, two toucans do a two-step and so on, up to 10 flamingos that tango. Along the way, bears cha-cha, foxes fox-trot and rhinos rumba until the joint is really jumpin'. Dorros's imagery--a smooth blend of playfulness and grace--provides McCully (Rabbit Pirates; Mirette on the Highwire) with the perfect starting point for her stylish and acrobatic characters. From the osprey, who is a swirl of tutu, plumage and toe shoes, to the gallant walrus couple waltzing on the book's jacket, McCully's fluid watercolors soar. She has left her usual lush backgrounds behind, here bringing the dancing menagerie to center stage on crisp white pages. The penultimate spread features a gatefold that opens into a ballroom brimming with the affable beasts. Especially notable are the bright, fine frocks and accessories worn by all. Ages 3-6. (Apr.)

This is a counting book with rhythm and flair and the whirling, twirling characters dance their way through the pages in an exuberant display. The one osprey spins and leaps in a less than dainty ballet while the two toucans two-step and the three bears form a line and cha-cha. What do the foxes do? They fox trot, of course, while some hep-cats tap dance and the crickets jiggle in a jitterbug. The sheep cancan and the walruses waltz. The rhinos bump and rumble in an awkward rumba as the flamboyant flamingos tango. The fact that toddlers would not know the dances may inhibit their appreciation of some of the humor, but they will nonetheless enjoy the colorful pictures and simple text. The illustrations capture the movements and the story ends with a gatefold of all the creatures crowded together on the dance floor. They shake the floor while the band plays on. 2000, HarperCollins, Ages 3 to 6, $15.95 and $15.89. Reviewer: Carolyn Mott Ford
Children's Literature
This basic counting book with a brief verse for each number has a host of animals dancing, with the rhythm, a variety of moves from ballet and cha cha cha through tap and jitterbug to cancan, waltz, rhumba, and the title tango. This gives McCully a chance to have a ball with this array of anthropomorphic critters—five cats in red jackets and black shoes tap away; a couple of ungainly rhinos enjoy a rhumba; a sextet of very agile crickets jitterbug "'cross the floor." These energized watercolor characters, set against a blank white page, finally all get together in a double foldout that bursts with dancing energy along with counting practice. 2000, HarperCollins Publishers, Ages 3 to 6, $15.95. Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
School Library Journal
PreS-K-Dance and counting form a natural partnership in this introductory concept book. While a musical band of sartorially splendid animals plays, a winsome series of dapper creatures dance through scenes in the appropriate numbers. There are foxes predictably performing the eponymous fox-trot, sheep kicking up the cancan, and rhinos doing the rumba. McCully's amusing watercolor illustrations are highlighted by spacious white backgrounds, and large, simple representations of the numbers make the format accessible to young children. The only misstep in an otherwise age-appropriate layout is the fact that the characters for numbers 8 to 10 are depicted over several pages. Preschoolers may be confused when they don't see the appointed number of dancers on the initial double-page spread that introduces the number. A charming although imperfect offering.-Rosalyn Pierini, San Luis Obispo City-County Library, CA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
Kirkus Reviews
From waltzing walruses to rhinos doing the rumba, an eclectic collection of light-footed animals shake and shimmy their way through the numbers one to ten in this counting book and primer of basic dances. Feet will be tapping to the lively tempo of rhyming verses as various creatures take to the floor. One osprey attired in a tutu begins the tale, dancing ballet. Next come a pair of two-stepping toucans. On it goes, right through to ten flamingos doing the tango. The story concludes with a gate-fold illustration opening up to reveal a spectacular scene of the entire group cutting a rug together on the overflowing dance floor. Each featured number stands out, brightly colored and filling nearly three-quarters the height of the page. Readers have plenty of opportunities to practice their counting as Dorros (The Fungus that Ate My School, 2000) cleverly incorporates the numbers into the dance steps, "3 bears begin to cha-cha. / 1,2,3, cha, cha, cha." McCully's (Monk Camps Out, 2000) vividly hued watercolors are uproariously funny. The juxtaposition of elegantly attired creatures, earnestly whirling about with an occasional hoof, tusk, or antennae showing will keep readers in stitches. Get ready to polish those dancing shoes because it is virtually impossible to sit still through a reading of this exuberant tale. One tremendously fun introduction to numbers. (Picture book. 3-6)
