Who’s Who?

Ken Geist, illus. by Henry Cole. Feiwel and Friends, $16.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-312-64437-6

Geist offers a high-spirited salute to animal sounds, movements, and twin siblings, riffing on the nursery rhyme “Over in the Meadow.” Geist’s verse introduces various sibling pairs in outdoor settings: “Over in the barnyard/ where the cows moo and moo,/ lives a noisy little calf/ and her loud twin, Blue./ ‘Moo!’ said the sister./ ‘We moo,’ said the two./ So they moo and they chew/ where the cows moo and moo.” Cole dresses his expressive cartoon animal twins in goofy, nearly matching outfits and provides plenty of action beyond that mentioned in the verse. A zippy if conventional spin on this familiar rhyme. Ages 1–3. (Aug.)
