Nonsensical appeal and vibrant illustrations will lead young readers right into this picture book in rhyme. The poem about three silly ladies provides illustrator Yu-Mei Han a rollicking chance to show off her style, reminiscent of the earthy characters of Margot Zemach. Uproarious escapades unfold in maxed-out color as the wise women's wits run away from them, leading them on a fantastic journey over land, sea, and skyuntil at last they find themselves happily back at home.
The read-aloud rhyme about the three wacky wanderers offers not a whit of wisdom, but giggles galore.
