Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Mother sees that her little Pookie has tears in his eyes and naturally she wants to find out what is wrong. He does not seem to be able to tell her, so she begins with a series of questions which he can answer with yes or no—Are you cold? Are you hungry? To all, Pookie answers no. Then mother tries a new approach. She asks Pookie some ridiculous questions—Did a very large hippo try to borrow your shoes? He responds to this and other outlandish questions with a comment, "That's silly." The ending is pure Boynton, and the expressions on Pookie's and his mother's faces tell it all. Amusing and probably a book that will make any parent's eyes roll. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
