Children's LiteratureMany of us know the initial part of this nursery rhyme and if you have a voice that can carry a tune there is even a musical version of the familiar refrain printed on the opening page. Hoberman has taken the popular rhyme and given it a bit more of a contemporary flair. The baby seems to have an insatiable appetite and when the doctor and the nurse all fail to diagnose his problem, it is up to the Lady with the Alligator Purse to find a solution—pizza for everyone. On the closing page there are more suggestions for having fun, including naming different toppings for pizza. The illustrations, like the rhyme, are full of rollicking humor and have a bright, breezy look. Preschool kids should have lots of fun with this entry in the "Sing-Along Stories" series. 2003, Little Brown, Ages 2 to 6.
