My Dolly

Woody Guthrie. Candlewick Press (MA), $12.99 (24pp) ISBN 978-0-7636-0770-8

The yellow dog and striped cat from Howdi Do and Bling Blang bring the same exuberance to this third picture book based on the lyrics of a Woody Guthrie song, My Dolly, illus. by Vladimir Radunsky. Here they are joined by a lively doll sporting a crystal teacup cap; she dances and flies across the brightly collaged pages as readers sing, ""Tra-la-la-la-la-la-lo,/ And she looks like this."" Music and lyrics included. ( May)
