Tongue Twisters

Charles Keller, Author, Ron Fritz, Illustrator Simon & Schuster $13.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-671-67123-5
Traditional tongue-twisters like ``How much wood would a woodchuck chuck,'' are mixed with lesser-known verses like ``Old oily Ollie oils old oily autos.'' Some tell complete stories within the rhymes, while others are simple one-liners of pure alliteration; the shorter, economically worded lines provide an effective contrast to the longer, more complicated twisters. The animated illustrations feature smiling vegetables and giggling seashells--even a happy pen--among the human cast. Keller presents an accommodating blend of simple and difficult tongue-twisters for readers to try out loud, whether they master them the first time around or not. Ages 5-9. (May)
