Marguerite, Go Wash Your Feet

Wallace Tripp, Author Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) $17.95 (48p) ISBN 978-0-395-35392-9
Granfa Grigg Had a Pig, A Great Big Ugly Man Came Up and Tied His Horse to Me and other comic collections have won awards for Tripp. His new offering is a cornucopia of spacey amusements, bound to delight fun-seekers. Bursting with action, brightly colored pictures accentuate the nonsense in all the entries. The title is taken, as every wag knows, from the couplet with the second-line warning, ""The Board of Health's across the street!'' Tripp burlesques noble lines as well, even those penned by mighty Shakespeare and delicate Emily Dickinson. Illustrating ``I'm Nobody! Who Are You?'' is a gathering of fabulous nonentities including King Kong; a slightly smaller giant carrying Charlie Chaplin; Pinocchio, his nose lengthening as he lies to Wonderland's Alice; Baby Bear assuring Goldilocks: ``We fixed the chair and, anyway, I hate Porridge''; and others. (All ages)
