Overview

A classic Golden Book, with lots of kid appeal, is back in print!

What happens when the local rag man sneezes? The kitten’s ears end up on the bunny. The bunny’s ears end up on the kitten. The dog meows, the cat barks. “No barnyard will have me!” crows the rooster, whose tail feathers now sprout out of his head. But with a little concentration—and a lot of pepper—the rag man tries to sneeze everything right: “Katchoo! Katchim! Katcham! Katchibble! Fumadiddle! Skedaddle! Fiddle-faddle!” Hilariously reillustrated by Bruce Ingman, this classic Golden Book will delight a new generation.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—At the conclusion of this sweet tale, one feels fully satisfied, as a topsy-turvy situation is resolved and order is regained. First published in 1948, this version preserves the original charm of Cabral's text and introduces Ingman's fresh illustrations, which combine splashes of bright color with simple line drawings. Seven characters are all comfortable with their special attributes. Then a sneezing ragman causes barks, meows, feathers, combs, pigtails, and shoes to fly off and land on the wrong owners. The affable ragman is willing to sneeze everything back into place but first he must discover the magic word that accompanied the sneeze that caused each mishap. This is accomplished with the help of the little girl and a lot of pepper. Storytimes will erupt with laughter as listeners repeat the seven silly sneeze sounds—"Katchoo! Katchim! Katcham! Katchibble! Fumadiddle! Skeedaddle! Fiddle-faddle!" This innocent story is a welcome antidote for these more complicated times.—Gloria Koster, West School, New Canaan, CT

This was one of my most memorable childhood reads.  However, i wonder why the publisher chose th change the illustrations.since the original featured the rag man driving a wagon the old fashioned illustrations worked perfectly.  I even read it to my children when they were young and they too loved it as much as i.
