Szekeres' Mother Goose

Cyndy Szekeres / Author, Golden Books / Author, Cyndy Szekeres / Illust

Szekeres has crammed her collection of Mother Goose rhymes with rollicking backgrounds, frolicsome animals and calico patch trimmings. The cock that ""crows in the morn'' wears long, white underwear, a downy white Mother Goose bids small mice to help themselves to her quills, and there is even a stray subway token in a pint-size box. Jack and Jill (two mice) go up an inflatable swimming pool hill, in the middle of which sits a fat baby pig. The little dog that's laughing ``to see such a sport'' is actually flat on her back with glee. There are many more cute details to pore over in this bookan eyeful for any toddler. Ages 2-5. (July)
