Uncle Henry, Aunt

Nicole Rubel, Author Dial Books $10.95 (24p) ISBN 978-0-8037-0246-2
All babysitters dream of having their charges fall asleep. And Uncle Henry and Aunt Henrietta are no exception. Caring for their niece and nephew, they hold the children spellbound with one frivolous tale after another detailing how they spent their honeymoon. With Uncle Henry recounting and Aunt Henrietta correcting, their mirthful disasters range from shipwreck and capture by fierce natives to Sahara treks and Antarctic explorations. The two cover the world with their imaginary exploits and in the process lull the children to sleep. Never mind that the next morning they learn the truth about Uncle Henry and Aunt Henrietta's honeymoon. Rubel has created another amusing story; her illustrations of this crocodile family will tickle any child. (3-7)
