There Once Was a Man Named Michael Finnegan

Mary Ann Hoberman, Author, Nadine Bernard Westcott, Illustrator Megan Tingley Books $14.95 (32p) ISBN 978-0-316-36301-3
Several books invite youngsters to join in the fun. There Once Was a Man Named Michael Finnegan, adapted by Mary Ann Hoberman, illus. by Nadine Bernard Westcott, is a silly song that instructs young singers to ""begin-igan"" at the end of each verse. On a vertical spread, ""Michael played the violin-igan,/ Tucked it underneath his chin-igan,/ Played so loud it was a sin-igan,/ Noisy Michael Finnegan, begin-igan."" Westcott illustrates each lively scene with humorous details; the baby and the cat look even more distressed than the rest of the family. Music and lyrics are included. ( Apr.)
